The Gift of Herbs plus Saving and Sharing Seeds

Richard Thomas from Grosse Pointe, MI - 11/30/2018 08:46:13

Time, like a lovely magician's assistant, disappears when listening to Ben's tales of seeds and the people that saved them. The charm of reaching back and forth through time to people and often undiscovered histories that connect folk who are collecting seed is not just engaging but infectious and lures out the Jack in the beanstalk hopes in all of us. Ben also unveiled the great herbal power and surprising nutrition in common forbs that live by our side but go unnoticed or discarded by most of us. These are tremendous gifts that were once common knowledge. We have forgotten so much in our lives severed from our food sources. Ben gave 2 talks to our organization in one afternoon and left us all wanting more.
As a guest he is low maintenance, flexible, generous, easy to be around, engaging. If you are regularly bringing speakers to your group you know just how much those qualities are appreciated.

If you weren’t saving seeds before.. you will now!

I saw Ben speak at the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed festival this past September. I have known that I should be saving seeds for awhile now but it didn’t really register with me how important it is until Ben’s talk. Using seed saving as an ability to strengthen varieties based on local conditions is something that Ben taught us that day and I’ll never forget it!!

Ben Cohen Rocks with Herbs

Tina Marie Wilcox from leslie, arkansas - 10/02/2018 14:25:58

This young man is passionate yet level in his presentation style. He presented for the International Herb Association's annual conference in 2017 and 2018. I hope to have him speak at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas in the future. He knows his wild plants, uses herbs for food and medicine in real life and makes delicious, fresh, ethically produced oils and herbal
