Get inspired with herbs! Learn about a variety of herbs and how to use them to help maintain your family’s health. There are many herbs you can grow in your Wellness Garden, for use in teas, salves, oils, and more. Many are both culinary and medicinal with a vast amount of beneficial properties. Our wild herbs and native plants are dwindling quickly, as our climate changes and wild crafting has become so popular, often without the understanding and/or practice of sustainable methods. Empower yourself and promote sustainability by choosing to take the reins and get involved in growing your own food and medicine whenever possible. Let us help you explore the possibilities.
Many herbal starter plants will be available for purchase. Herbal Med Rx Apothecary will be open for business during lunch break. Bring a notepad, and soil, sun, zone information for where you will be planting your garden.
