DEARBORN – The Dearborn Public Library will host Bevin Cohen, author, herbalist and owner of Small House Farm, for a talk on his recent book, “The Complete Guide to Seed and Nut Oils.”

This informative session will cover a number of oilseed crops that can easily be grown on the farm, homestead, or even the home garden for small-scale oil production. Cohen will discuss growing, foraging, harvesting, and processing various seeds and nuts; and will also explore equipment needs, proper storage as well as different uses for the freshly pressed oils.
Cohen offers workshops and lectures across the country about the benefits of living closer to the land through seeds, herbs, and locally grown food. He is a food and garden writer whose work has appeared in numerous publications including Mother Earth News, Modern Farmer Magazine, and The Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation.
