YGP Community Workshop Series: The Cultivation and Preparation of Five Essential Herbs
May 23 | 5:00 pmFree
Join us in YGP’s garden and kitchen for this two-part informational series led by herbalist Emily Stock of Sundial Medicinals. Five essential household herbs will be explored in depth: how to grow them, when to use them, and how to harvest them. Each herb will have a different preparation method demonstrated in the kitchen, so participants will learn a variety of medicine making!
This workshop is free, but please reserve your spot in advance at this link: https://forms.gle/ZPdKvixEigY1cuAC6
We’ll meet on the YGP patio (530 S 400 E) at 5pm. Hope to see you there!
