Herb farm toured

| July 28, 2016

COSHOCTON – The Friends of the Library hosted a lecture and tour on herb gardening at Julia Brown’s farm where she operates A Simpler Thyme LTD.

Brown, a certified master herbalist, took attendees through her garden and explained some of the benefits of the multiple herbs she raises.

“There is an herb for every facet of your body,” she said.

One example she gave is that basil calms nerves relieving stress and anxiety and eases headaches.

Brown, however, noted that our government does not recognize herbalist as a profession and she cannot say that an herb will fix, cure or heal a health problem. She can only give her opinion.

Brown encouraged people to consult their healthcare provider before using an herb medicinally.

Refreshments made using some of the herbs from Brown’s garden were enjoyed by attendees following the tour.
