Rick and Tina Deonise, owners of Camden Floral, were hosts for the Lugoff Garden Club’s Nov. 17 meeting at their shop on Goodall Avenue.   The social hour began at 6:30 p.m. and the speaker’s  hour  began at 7 p.m.  

The evening’s presentation was about   the exploration  of Ayurvedic Herbs.  Ayurvedia is a Sanskrit word when translated from the root Ayu, which means life or daily living and Veda, which means knowing or science gives us the knowledge of life or the science of life.  

Ayurveda is the sister science to  yoga and is a 5000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. Although suppressed during years of foreign occupation, Ayurveda has experienced a major resurgence in both its native land and throughout the world. Tibetan medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine both have their roots in Ayurveda. 

Early Greek medicine also embraced many concepts originally described in the classical ayurvedic medical texts dating back thousands of years. It is a holistic medicine system and the main goal of Ayurveda is to provide people with tools to restore and maintain health in the body so that disease cannot take hold.  One of the main ways in which this goal is accomplished is through the use of herbs and spices. Tina’s discussion  revolved around a few of the herbs and spices that are staples in Ayurveda.

“Since purchasing Camden Floral in April 2014, I have learned valuable lessons, not only from the previous owners, but from the owners of all the flower shops where I have worked,” Rick said.  Our goal at Camden Floral is to continue to provide excellent customer service which has been the hallmark of Camden Floral since 1921. We are happy to be serving Camden and surrounding areas.”

Tina fulfills the role of chief financial officer and is part owner with her  brother.  

“While I enjoyed my time working as a trust officer I am happy to have moved from Los Angeles to Camden to live what I feel will be a better quality of life for me,” Tina said. “I enjoy the outdoors and nature. I love to garden and I’m particularly fond of herbs. I enjoy experimenting with growing new and unique plants. I love informal gardens with unusual plants and landscaping”.

The Lugoff Garden Club’s meetings are held the third Monday of each month September through May.
