The Northwest Asian Medicinal Herb Network is pleased to announce an upcoming workshop Continuing our partnership with the Northwest Agricultural Business Center: Chinese Medicinal Herbs: Descriptive Sensory Analysis and Organoleptic Evaluation
As growers and practitioners move forward together with our project to develop domestic production of East Asian medicinal herbs, we find the need for more specific information about how cultivation, harvest, and processing contribute to the potency of individual herbs, and what markers reveal those qualities. While it is an ongoing journey, this workshop will provide essential knowledge to advance our learning, and enhance the products we grow. Christopher Hafner, L.Ac. and Craig Hassel, Ph.D. are thought leaders in the development of an assessment tool to standardize organoleptic evaluation of Chinese herbs. Andrew Ellis, author of Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine and Notes from South Mountain, and owner of Spring Wind Herbs, is known for import and distribution of high quality Chinese herbs for over 30 years. We are grateful that they have agreed to share their valuable knowledge and experience with us here in the Northwest. Hope to see you there!
Practitioners: 14 PDA’s have been applied for through the NCCAOM.
