Author and herbalist to share the benefits of herbs with the Adrian District Library – The Daily Telegram

ADRIAN — An author and herbalist will share the benefits of various cultivated and foraged herbs during a program at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 11, at the Adrian District Library in downtown Adrian.

Bevin Cohen of Small House Farm in Sanford in Midland County will teach attendees how to create salves, balms and tinctures using herbs that can be grown in their own backyard. The presentation is offered at no cost and is open to the public. An Adrian District Library card is not needed to attend.

“Teas, Tinctures and Oils at Home” is the title of Cohen’s presentation, which intends to not only share the benefits of herbs grown at home but also how simple it is to grow and “incorporate those herbs into your life, and express why developing a healthier and more sustainable relationship with natural remedies and supplements is so important,” a news release from the library said. 

“Natural remedies are really growing in popularity right now, and we want to support that interest among our community members,” Jennifer Noble, adult and teen services librarian at the Adrian District Library, said in the release. “We’re incredibly excited to have Bevin present here so we can also learn how to use natural herbs and remedies in a safe and sustainable way.”

Cohen is also a freelance writer whose work has appeared in several publications including Mother Earth News, Hobby Farms Magazine and the Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation. He is the author of four books including “Saving Our Seeds,” “The Artisan Herbalist” and his latest book, “The Complete Guide to Seed & Nut Oils.”
