Award winning author, photographer, and herbalist, Deni Bown of Norfolk, England, was this year’s keynote. She explored the scientific basis for herbal remedies and showed how simply and effectively you can use herbs to maintain and improve your health.

Other presentations offered were The Language of Flowers and Herbs, Cinderella Herbs, and Culinary Uses for Herbs. The short film “God’s Garden” was shown.

The Extravaganza also offered exhibits, demonstrations, Lucia’s Garden (book store), an herb sale, and a fresh herbal lunch.
