"Garlic: Medicine for the Masses" with John Slattery of Desert Tortoise Botanicals

Monday, March 18, 2013
6 - 8 pm

From the Eurasian Steppe to the Sonoran Desert, the magic and aroma of garlic permeates the lives of the peoples of the Earth. From warding off evil spells to influenza, lowering blood pressure to fighting cancer, we as a people have bonded with garlic for millennia. Join Sonoran herbalist John Slattery (back by popular demand!) for a discussion on the healing prowess of our beloved garlic from ancient times to the cutting edge of present genomic study.

Native Seeds/SEARCH Salons happen every third Monday of the month at the NS/S Conservation Center and have a little something for anyone who has ever wielded a fork or pitchfork. Bring your juiciest ideas and an appetite for mind-watering conversations.
