“Backyard Apothecary: Growing Herbs to Keep Your Friends and Family Healthy”
Speaker Gayle Engels
Program Focus: Did you know that the apothecary is actually the person, not the place? Apothecaries were the forerunners of pharmacists. And did you know that many of the herbs that you grow are beneficial to your health when prepared in food or teas, or can be incorporated into simple preparations to will help you, your family, and your (trusting) friends stay healthy in times of colds, flu, and stress? There are many herbs and spices that can support a healthy microbiome, which might make you less susceptible to illness, and you are probably growing and using some of these plant allies already. Let’s learn more!
Gayle Engels is the Special Projects Director for the American Botanical Council (ABC) where she has worked since 1995. She currently manages the development and maintenance of ABC’s website, coordinates the development of content on special projects, and guides its education department and the development of its medicinal demonstration gardens. One of her greatest joys is sharing knowledge with others and, in 2019, she was awarded the Herb Society of America’s Madalene Hill Award for Excellence in Herbal Education. She currently serves on HSA’s board as Botany and Horticulture chair and is honored to be a lifetime member of the Austin Herb Society.
