Monday September 11th at 6:00pm

Join herbalist Shannon Renne for a fun evening talk on Herbal Cocktails and Mocktails.  Drinks for the whole family will be discussed along with a tasting of some of Shannon’s creations.  She has been a mixologist for several area herbal fundraisers refining some recipes she will share with you!

Suggested donation of $5-$10 will support the Madison Area Permaculture Guild Herb Garden.  No one will be turned away for lack of funds.  Please join us!

Rosa Rugosa and Other Plants – Giveaway in the Herb Garden!

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 nativamedica@gmail.com

Garden is at 3919 Gray Road, DeForest (just 2 miles north of Madison in Token Creek).  E-mail for directions if needed.
