Garden workshop at Meeting Place Senior Center April 7

Published 1:50 pm Tuesday, April 5, 2011

The public is invited to a special garden workshop at The Meeting Place Senior Center on April 7 from 10 – 11:30 a.m. The topic is “Kitchen Herb Gardens.” Participants will be able to create their own small garden of aromatic and useful gourmet herbs. There is a small cost for the class.

The workshop will be led by Emily Skipper. She has had extensive experience in greenhouse and garden centers in the Isothermal Belt. Having grown up farming in Polk County, she has considerable knowledge of native plants as well as non-native ones which grow well in this area.

Skipper will discuss the care of these kitchen herb gardens and provide some of the general uses for the herbs while assisting participants in the creation of their own gardens. This is an opportunity for some informal, hands-on learning and you get to take home the results of your efforts.
