Herb Talk on Monday May 8th – Violet and Dandelion

Herb Talk at the MAPG Herb Garden on Monday!!
Monday May 8th, 2017 6:00:-7:30pm
Spring tonic plants of violets and dandelion are the topic tonight. We will be talking how to cook with foraged leaves and flowers. Recipes and a handout will be provided. If you want to do the take-away DIY project please bring a pint mason jar with lid and high proof alcohol (like Everclear) or high proof vodka to tincture the dandelion leaf. We will forage here and make a group project together, as it take MANY violets to make a tincture or oil. If you have violets at home or elsewhere that are in a chemical free space, pick the flowers (some leaves are good too) and bring them with you. The more the better! If you pick the day before, just put them in the refrig in a plastic bag. We welcome you to bring any food to share, more the better if it includes dandelion greens or violets! There will be dandelion leaf tea for us to share together.
There is some Celandine poppy I have to share with those who want some, plants or cuttings. Bring a plastic bag or bucket with you!
Donations are not required but much appreciated to help us maintain the herb garden, add more plants and have project materials for our talks.
