Herbalist Deb Soule will discuss “Creating a Medicinal Garden” Tuesday, March 27, 6:30 p.m., sponsored by Belfast Garden Club as part of its Evening Lecture Series. Her illustrated presentation, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Abbott Room of the Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.

Soule is the author of “The Woman’s Handbook of Healing Herbs” and “How to Move Like a Gardener.” In the fall of 1985, with her first mail-order catalog and a small selection of herbal extracts and teas, she launched Avena Botanicals at the Common Ground Fair. Today Avena Botanicals has grown to offer an herbal apothecary, and a biodynamic medicinal herb farm, shop, classroom and clinic.

A longtime organic and biodynamic gardener, Soule will include information about growing, harvesting and using some of her favorite medicinal herbs.

The Belfast Garden Club has promoted civic beautification and presented speakers to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening since 1929. For more information about the club, visit belfastgardenclub.org.
