Then on Saturday, I will be offering a full-day workshop on "Growing Your Own Pharmacy". This will be directed at home gardeners, but people who are interested in perhaps doing this commercially will also gain a lot from the workshop. There will be several colorful Powerpoint presentations illustrating 20 or more medicinal herbs to grow in the sun and shade and how to grow, harvest, and dry herbs. There will also be two hands-on activities. One on making simple tinctures and another on propagating medicinal herbs. All attendees will go home with "tinctures in process" and several potted plants.
Workshop is Saturday, November 6, 2010 from 10 am to 3 pm with lunch included. $75 ($65 for garden members). Reservations are required. Contact the Botanical Garden directly for that information.
