At the April 15th meeting of the Florence Herb Enthusiasts, Nome McBride, cofounder of Eugene based American Herbal Dispensary Inc. (Pharmacopia Herbals), will give a presentation he calls “Plants for the People: A local Materia Medica.” McBride was unavailable to give this presentation in January,so it has been rescheduled for this April 15th meeting. McBride, an Ethno-Botanical Herbalist, has a long tradition in his family of both agriculture and medical practice. Through his herbal products company he bridges those two worlds together. His company organically farms over 15 acres and wild harvests hundreds of herbs a year from the National Forests of the Pacific NW. He lives in Pleasant Hill with his wife and son and enjoys the beauty found in life wherever he goes.

“All are welcome to learn time-tested practical skills for increasing health with plants that are already amongst us. By learning the concepts of basic herbalism, participants will learn not just when to use certain herbs for certain ailments, but the actions, the reasons why the herbs work and how to identify those qualities in a given herb,” explained   McBride. He is known in the herbal community for his concise and relevant approach to herbal healthcare. He teaches extensively in the Northwest at herbal fairs, conferences and as a guest teacher at many reputable herbal schools and naturopathic universities.

To learn when, why and how to use native plants and common garden herbs for health and nutrition, come join the Florence Herb Enthusiasts who meet every third Thursday of the month at 10 AM at the FUUF on the corner of Heceta Beach Road and Hwy 101. Everyone is welcome.

Whether you are a novice, professional or an in between, come explore the wonderful world of herbs. For more information call Marlena Armstrong at 902-8393 or visit www.florenceherbenthusiasts.com.
