14th Annual Herb and Food Fair Brings Thousands to Bastyr Campus

Thousands attended the 2012 Herb and Food Fair

The fair provides a fun environment for the community to enjoy and learn about natural health, featuring free acupuncture demonstrations, garden tours, nutritious cooking demonstrations and more.

The main stage featured entertainment ranging from local musical acts to the Bastyr University Hula Club, as well as informative speakers, including Jean Layton ND, also known as “the Gluten-Free Doctor,” and internationally renowned mycologist Paul Stamets.

Bastyr faculty member Heidi Bohan also unveiled the University’s newest project, the Sacred Seeds Ethnobotanical Trail. During the opening ceremony for the mile-long trail that will serve as an educational resource for the community, Bohan explained the importance of preserving native plants and sharing that information.

The Bastyr University campus will serve as the Pacific Northwest host for this national effort to cultivate native plants, encourage seed saving, and use the sanctuary to the advantage of the community for ethnobotanical knowledge.
