Workshop by Tobias Policha, PhD.

Herbs in the Landscape: A Permaculture Perspective

In this dynamic presentation, we will explore the ways in which our common medicinal plants interact in the landscape. What can individual herbs and plant associations tell us about the ecology of our gardens and bioregions? How can we use medicinal herbs in our gardens to promote diversity and increase the health of other crops? Using principles of permaculture design we will discuss the multiple functions of medicinal herbs in the landscape, and how we can use medicinal plants to build resilient, productive, and beautiful gardens. By thinking broadly about health in both humans and ecosystems, we can use these tools to promote the conservation of at risk medicinal plants.

Free Herbalism Project - Herb Day Event in Eugene
What is Herb Day?

Herb Day is an international celebration of herbs and herbal products that is packed with events aimed at educating and sharing ideas about the many ways herbs bring joy and wellbeing into our daily lives. We celebrate herbs in food, beverages, medicine, beauty products, and crafts, along with the art of growing and gardening with herbs. Herb Day is a grassroots movement and its events belong to everyone who chooses to participate. Although May 4th will be the focal point of our celebration, we encourage you to commemorate Herb Day any time of year!

The HerbDay Coalition consists of the American Botanical CouncilUnited Plant Savers, the American Herbal Products Association, the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, and the American Herbalists Guild.
