Herb Gardening in the Berkshires, Part II: Harvesting, Drying, and Making

July 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$10.00 - $20.00
Join us for the 2nd workshop of our herb gardening series.

In the 2nd workshop in our herb garden series, Pat Parkins will show you what to do when you’re your herbs have sprouted and are ready to be harvested. Starting with a sampling of medicinal plants readily found in our area, we will talk about what to harvest, how to identify the plants, how to harvest, and ways to dry these plants. We will also talk about different ways to use herbal remedies, such as teas and tinctures, and how to prepare them. This workshop will be a one hour conversation.

Pat Parkins is the owner of Gardens of the Goddess, a Becket based company that has been working for over 25 years to enhance nature’s beauty through artful landscape design, installation and maintenance.

Seating is limited and pre-registration is required for this event.

These workshops are sponsored by the Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Area.
