Deb Soule began gardening and studying the medicinal uses of herbs over 40 years ago while growing up in western Maine. In 1985 she founded Avena Botanicals Herbal Apothecary and Healing Garden in Rockport, Maine. Deb tends a 3 acre biodynamic herb garden which provides numerous herbs for Avena’s herbal tinctures, teas, salves, and crèmes and serves as a classroom and sanctuary garden for pollinators and people. Her love for sharing plant wisdom infuses her books Healing Herbs for Women and How To Move Like a Gardener: Planting and Preparing Medicines from Plants.
