The Green Café: Deep Roots: The Benefits of Healing Herbs

October 1, 2015

Presented by Suyuna Eng Ren, MCDB - Gendron Lab

Suyuna Ren offered her motherly knowledge of Chinese herbal medicine with the Green Café.  A culture very in touch with the respect of teas, we learned how different teas can help center the mind and body at different times of the day.  We also learned about simple herbs such as ginger and ginseng that can add health benefits to many home cooked meals and shared with us samples of her cooking.
