Join urban forager Steve Nystrand on July 13 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. to identify what is edible on campus and beyond. Steve is UW-Madison Arboretum’s horticulturalist for Longenecker Garden and has spent years as a landscaper on the UW campus. He loves wild and ornamental edibles, and has been gathering them most of his life. We will meet at Allen Centennial Gardens. Cancelled if there is rain.
There is free parking near the Gardens after 4:30 pm.
Making an Herbal First Aid Kit
What goes into making an herbal first aid kit? Something portable, you can take on your hike or in your car or maybe a larger, more elaborate one for at home. Learn about some must-have’s and options for other additions to your kit. Day Host-Jablonski will lead this talk.
Join us Monday July 10th from 6:00-7:30pm for this talk and some time in the Herb Garden. Bring garden gloves with you if you have them. Reply-all to this message for carpooling, or contact Jean at nativamedica at gmail.com
Free Herb Talks the 2nd and 4th Mondays,
May 8th thru the end of September
We meet rain or shine! There is an indoor space for the talk if the weather won’t allow us to be outside. We announce topics for each date as the plants come into harvest for our take-home DIY projects or in some cases it may be show and tell only.
Donations are not required but are much appreciated to help us maintain the herb garden, add plants and to have materials for our herb talks.
Garden location at 3919 Gray Road DeForest, just 2 miles north of Madison.
