Certified Organic Medicinal Herb Gardens, Herbal Apothecary, Herb Shop and Education Center.
Avena Botanicals Medicinal Herb Garden contains over 150 different medicinal herbs and plants. Their three-acre gardens are certified organic by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and certified Biodynamic® by Demeter-USA. Each herb, flower, shrub and tree growing in and around the gardens has been planted for its medicinal or edible uses or as food for plant pollinators. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the quiet, tranquil beauty of the garden. Wandering paths, meditation benches and handcrafted arbors and gates add to the colors and textures of our thoughtfully designed garden. A garden map and booklet explaining the medicinal uses of the herbs is at the garden's entrance for visitors who wish to learn more about the healing properties of plants.
