On this special Halloween episode, Desiree talks with Carolyn Westbrook of Woda Botanicals and Yarrow Hinnant about various local plants, the lore and significance of plant names, and how these plants can be processed to use medicinally. The interview ran a little long so we included a bonus segment with more details on processing herbs that was not included in the original episode. 

In addition, Homer Soil and Waters' Kyra Wagner provides our 'tech minute' and Nicole Arevalo has our weekly roundup of oppurtunities in local Ag.

This episode first aired on October 31, 2000 on a blue moon.
