Den Paradera

Den Paradera is a garden of healing herbs as put together by Dinah Veeris. Veeris studied at the California School for Herbal Studies, and put Den Pardera together after interviewing the elderly in her community to learn about old healing traditions. This garden offers guests an opportunity to learn about those traditions.
