Maggie O’Halloran, of the Florida School of Holistic Living, will give a talk about edible plants in and around our town. Many of the Florida plants around us are not edible but many are edible and good for you.
Maggie O’Halloran is an herbalist and educator in Central Florida. She comes from a large family where chaos was the norm. She always found peace outside watching things grow or climbing magnolia trees. One of her older brothers was considered hyperactive and had a hard time staying in school. Because of the impact food had on his behavior they had no sugar in the house, including ketchup! She learned in her mother’s kitchen that the things you put in your mouth impact your mind and your body.
