Susun WeedMaster Herbalist Susun Weed
on Herbal Infusions

For Beyond 50's "Natural Healing" talks, listen to an interview with Susun Weed, an internationally renowned expert on healing herbs. She'll recommend all to change what you drink. Instead of coffee, tea, fruit juice, soda or even bottled water, drink nourishing herbal infusions. They are powerhouses of vitamins, minerals, proteins and other phytonutrients like polyphenols and phytoestrogens. Herbal Infusions can literally rebuild the body. In the interview, she recommends you try Nettle, Red Clover, Oat Straw, Comfrey Leaf and Linden Flower.

Haven Farm

For Beyond 50's "Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Practices," listen to an interview with Jacqueline Freeman, the co-owner of the Friendly Haven Farm in Venersborg,WA. She'll talk about biodynamic farming in the Springtime. Their methods are based on the principles of Rudolph Steiner, an Austrian social philosopher of the twentieth century. Steiner understood the Earth to be a living, interconnected organism; the farm should be a self-contained organism that functions like a microcosm. Steiner is also known for the idea of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), Waldorf schools, and anthroposophical medicine.
