Author of Canada bestseller The Boreal Herbal to visit Galway

What are the benefits of herbs and how can we use them in our everyday lives? The bestselling author of the beautifully presented and illustrated book The Boreal Herbal will discuss these question in a talk and free demonstration this weekend.

The Boreal Herbal: Wild Food and Medicine Plants of the North features 55 herbs, berries, and trees, many of which are common and easy to find. It is a guide to identifying and using plants as foraging foods and as medicine. Enjoy 200 recipes for teas, tinctures, flower essences, creams, jams, jellies, baked goods, and soups.

“Bev Gray is a vivacious and impassioned public speaker,” said Dr Dilis Clare, GP and medical herbalist, and director of Health and Herbs Clinic of Integrated Medicine Galway. “She will delight us with her depth of knowledge. Practical tips will bring wonderful healing plants into your daily life. Her book is inspiring and very beautiful.”

Author Beverly Gray is a herbalist, aromatherapist, natural health practitioner, and journalist. She will speak at Health and Herbs, Sea Road, on Saturday March 9 at 3pm. The one hour talk will be followed by a book signing, and the event is free to attend.
