Meet Michael Balick

Balick BookBecky M. sent us this link to an interesting interview with Michael Balick, an ethnobotanist and Vice President for Botanical Science at The New York Botanical Garden. He is the author of Rodale’s 21st Century Herbal: A Practical Guide for Healthy Living Using Nature’s Most Powerful Plants.

The book looks like a winner to me. You will find that chocolate is an Herb!

By the way, the website that this article is on is excellent. I just read about reverting plants and how hostas are developed. The pictures are georgious too. You can find this link in the “Garden Tips” section of the “Other Interesting Sites” Menu item. Just click on this entry: “Margaret Roach’s A Way To Garden”.

  1. Looks like a book I must check out – especially if it categorizes chocolate as an herb! I am always looking for info on new and interesting herbs (and ways to cook with them and make tea!) It sounds like they present interesting herbs from around the world as well as those we are familiar with. Thanks Becky for the recommendation.
