Herbal Medicine and Biodynamic Farming

Time: Friday Oct 4th from 10:30AM to 12:00PM

Location: Shoreline Room

Speaker(s): Randal Buresh - Co-founder, Oregon Wild Harvest

This workshop offers a lively discussion explaining the history of biodynamic farming methods.
It focuses on helping people to understand our close relationship with the plants, soil, and water, and explaining how we can help restore and replace the organic matter in the soil, which in turn builds humus helping to sequester carbon from the atmosphere.

We’ll discuss the parallels of biodynamic farming and traditional herbal medicine, prep making and application and building compost piles in your own backyard. You will get seeds and an explanation of proper growing conditions to help achieve the very best plants mother nature will provide.


In the early 90s, Randy and Pam Buresh had a dream to naturally heal the body and the earth by growing and manufacturing organic herbal supplements. Randy’s background as a registered surgical nurse for over 20 years piqued his interest in traditional herbal medicine.

A compassionate caregiver and farmer by nature, he was always in search of less invasive treatments for illness and health conditions. Randy’s youth spent working on his uncle’s farm planted the idea of stewarding the land by growing and procuring herbs. It became the perfect segue into starting an herbal supplement business.
