The MN Herb Society was fortunate to have acclaimed author Beth Dooley speak at our last meeting. Beth has written or co authored 6 books and is a regular contributor to the Star Tribune. Over the years, various members of the MN Herb Society have used her recipes for dishes at our delicious potluck events. Beth spoke about how “everything is connected”, the emergence of the local food system (eating local supports local farmers), and soil health. She believes that soil health is a big concern and commented it’s not only what we’re growing, but how we’re growing it.
