It was a joy to have the Reisen duo make a trip to our school for a talk on “Herbs and Their Many Healing Properties.” Andrea and Matthias Reisen are gifted, loving herbalists who co-founded Healing Spirits Herb Farm and Education Center. They grow and dry some of the best herbs we have ever seen! Healing Spirits Herb Farm and Education Center is a NOFA-NY Certified Organic Medicinal Herb Farm located in the Finger Lakes Region of New York.
