Herb Collective Gathering tonight – Monday 7/21 at 6P!

Hi all,

We invite you to come play in the herb garden at the Token Creek Eco-Inn this Monday, July 21 at 6:00 pm (or whenever you can get there).

We will be learning about chamomile.  There is a bunch blooming in the garden at the moment.  Since it’s the flowers that are used medicinally, we can harvest it Monday night.  According to David Hoffmann, in the New Holistic Herbal, “chamomile is renowned for its medical and household uses”.  Come find out what they are.

We have a totally new schedule for the remaining times in the garden.
Wednesday 8/6 - Elaine speaks about hyssop

Wednesday 8/20 - Lola speaks about calendula
The rest of the dates and topics for Sept & Oct TBA.
Location: Token Creek Eco-Inn, 3919 Gray Road
DeForest, WI, 53532, WI
(608) 513-0016Please note that Gray Road NO LONGER goes through to Hwy 51.

Take the Windsor Road exit off Hwy 51, and drive about a mile.  Turn left onto Portage Rd.  Drive about 1/2 mile.  Just before you get to Gray Road, turn onto the grass “driveway” (just past the pine trees).  Please do not park in the Eco-Inn asphalt driveway.

What to bring?

Gloves, water bottle, hat, perhaps a trowel or other weeding tool.  We have some hand tools and shovels for weeding.  No gardening experience is needed.  If you can’t arrive by 6:00, come later.
