The first two hours will be spent weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden.

I will have cold water and bug spray (if needed) 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). . Everyone will get to go home with a handout that includes tips and general information. Please arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. The group will leave the building promptly at 8:30 a.m. Please dress appropriately: closed-toe shoes and layered clothing is 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!) .

These three hours will be spent cleaning and packaging seeds. Normally we would have a separate time for instruction, but instruction will be built in to the entire three hours for this event. As we clean the seeds, we will learn about seed saving and packaging with a goodly smattering of general herb information. Hot coffee and herbal libations will be provided. Arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot by 8:15a.m. We will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636-4134.
