Please note that the guidelines have changed for this event due to Covid-19:

All three hours will be spent outside. The event will be cancelled if it is raining. If you desire a mask, please bring your own. 6 feet spacing is encouraged. We will be weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden.  As we work, we will learn how to preserve our herbal harvests.  I will have sunscreen, bug spray, and hand sanitizer available. Please bring your favorite hand tool for weeding and grooming (soil knives, Cape Cod weeders, old kitchen knives, trowels, pruners, etc.). Bring your own gloves. Please dress appropriately: sun hats and closed toe shoes are suggested. Handouts will be available by email to participants.  Please come on out to the Herb Garden as you arrive.  If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636-4134.
