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.
