Medicinal herbs have continued to gain popularity. We will introduce you to medicinal herb farming, offering insights into crop selection and techniques for growing high quality medicinals. Explore harvesting practices and general dehydrating and processing methods that can be used for both commercial growers as well as the home gardener.

Jane Hawley Stevens owns Four Elements Organic Herbals, which produces medicinal herbal teas and skin care and wellness products. Jane and her husband, David, have a 130-acre farm an hour from Madison, Wis., that has been certified organic since 1990. Their organic herbs are picked at peak potency and processed at their dedicated facility.
