Ginger on Ginger

September 5, 2023 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Open to the public, free to attend

Who better to talk about ginger (Zingiber officinale), 2023 Herb of the Year, than the herb’s namesake?
Herbalist Ginger Webb will present on all things ginger, including the botany and chemistry of the Ginger family, the energetics and medicinal actions of ginger root, and lots of great examples of how to incorporate ginger into your medicine cabinet. The speaker presentation begins at 10:00 am, and check-in and refreshments start 9:30 am.

Ginger Webb has been practicing herbalism for nearly 30 years, as a community herbalist, clinical herbalist, herbal medicine maker, teacher, wild plant lover, botanist, and teacher. She makes and sells herbal medicine through her company Texas Medicinals, and has trained scores of people to be herbalists through her programs at Sacred Journey School of Herbalism. Her mission is to keep alive the craft of herbalism by modeling the age-old wisdom of being in the right relationship with the plants. After living in Austin for over 30 years, Ginger now lives on wild land in Wimberley, Texas.

This is the Austin Herb Society’s monthly meeting, which all are welcome to attend! This will take place in the Garden Center Auditorium.
