Apply for Herbal Allies in the Garden
Awaken this growing season by welcoming herbal plant allies in your gardens. In this course we will explore the many properties of common garden herbs and flowers, learn basic propagation methods, and discuss proper plant care strategies. We will use dried herbs to familiarize ourselves with these plants using herbal infusions such as teas, oils, syrups, and salves. This workshop series is free and open to the public, and we'll be prioritizing members of GreenThumb community gardens.
