GEARING UP THE ORGANIC HERB GARDEN
Warmer days make us want to get our hands dirty, take in some sun and prepare the garden for planting favorite herbs and summer vegetables. This workshop will begin in the barn with a PowerPoint presentation showing tips on composting, building soil, weed and pest control, planting herbs and vegetables--all without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. You'll plant seeds, tour the gardens, and dig selected plants to take home for your own garden. Join the fun; dress to garden, bring gloves, shovel, bags and boxes for carting home plants that you dig. A handout of recipes, techniques, and medicinal properties of herbs is included. Delicious herbal treats and tea will be served in the barn. Cost: $30 or $50 for two.
