Judy Behrens (Herbalist (Consultant))

Judy has lived in Eau Claire, WI. for over fifteen years where she first learned about the wonderful value of herbs for food and medicine. With the objective being to make Herbs her life's work Judy embarked on an intensified range of educational study, both at home, in the classroom and in the field. Judy is qualified to instruct in basic Herbalism and is an active member of the American Herbalist Guild. Judy's respect for the earth is a foundation stone of her beliefs, and she always treats the earth as a dear friend, never violating it in a quest for profit. She uses mainly local plants, and always strives to give back more to Mother Earth than she takes from it. While local plants are her main focus she is more than willing to use plants from another area to assure the best overall results. Judy's approach to the use of Herbs is to blend a folk and indigenous perspective of Herbcraft. She aims to bring the benefits of Herbs and Herbal medicine to the greatest number of people through a synthesis of old and new ideas.
