The first two hours will be spent weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden. The last hour will be spent learning about herbs: making and using Sugars and Salts. I will have cold water and bug spray available, you bring your favorite hand tools for weeding and grooming (soil knives, Cape Cod weeders, old kitchen knives, trowels, pruners, gloves, etc. – no hoes or rakes needed, though). If you want to actually participate in the sugars and salts class (instead of just watching), please bring the following: two sandwich baggies with ½ cup of sugar in one, and ½ cup salt in the other, a bowl or cup big enough to hold the sugar and salt, a cutting board, knife, extra sandwich size baggies, and plastic grocery bags. Everyone will get to go home with a handout that includes tips and recipes.
Please arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. The group will leave the building promptly at 8:30 a.m. Please dress appropriately: sun hats and closed toe shoes are suggested. Please note: this learning opportunity is “purchased” via a barter system: you must work the first two hours (8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.) to attend the last hour of class (10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.), making this a free event!).
If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636-4134.
