Monday August 28th from 6:00-7:30pm – Rosa Rugosa and Other Plants – Giveaway
The rose hips are ready to harvest and there is anise hyssop and even some yarrow flowers ready for picking. This time there is no formal talk, just harvesting in the herb garden and digging up rosa rugosa, yarrow and other plants to share out in the community. Bring your garden gloves, clean shovels, bags and pots for your plants as well as bug spray (there haven’t been many bugs lately though). Donations, even just a few dollars, are much appreciated for the plants and to help fund the expansion of our herbal offerings.
Bring garden gloves with you if you have them. We have tools and gloves available to borrow. Reply-all to this message for carpooling, or contact Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org
Garden is at 3919 Gray Road, DeForest (just 2 miles north of Madison in Token Creek). E-mail for directions if needed.
