Monday July 25th 6:00:-7:30: Catnip, its not just for cats! It makes a tasty tea or tincture and can be used for indigestion, headaches, acute illness and as a sedative. Kate McFeeley, Herbalist and owner of Prairie Pearls, will be leading the talk this week. Come and see our massive catnip plant and learn how to harvest and use it yourself. We will have some catnip tea to try along with other goodies to snack on. Bring a collection bag with you if you want to harvest some catnip to take home. There will be a handout too. Bring garden gloves if you have them. If you want to make the tincture bring a small mason jar and high proof alcohol with you.
We meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month at our demonstration herb garden, 2 miles north of Madison at 3919 Gray Road, DeForest (Token Creek). For more info: http://madisonareapermacultureguild.org/herb-collective/

We usually have plants to share with you – there is a lot of Rosa rugosa (for rose hips) that you can take home and plant in your garden. Several varieties of mint too!
