Bevin (Ben) Cohen is an author, poet, herbalist, gardener, seed saver and wanderer. He lives and works at Small House Farm with his wife, Heather, and two sons, Elijah and Anakin, on their family homestead in Sanford, Michigan.

The Cohen family grows seed crops, herbs and flowers and also keeps a small flock of laying hens. Bevin is also the founder of Michigan Seed Library, a community seed sharing initiative that has worked closely with a number of communities to help establish seed library programs across his home state and beyond.

He spends his time outside of his gardens offering workshops and lectures across the country on the benefits of living closer to the land through seeds, herbs and locally grown food.  In July of 2018, Ben published his first book,  From Our Seeds & Their Keepers: A Collection of Stories. He'll be discussing his newest book, The Artisan Herbalist. Participants will have the opportunity to make a custom tea with herbs Bevin will provide.
