Posted on 08 October 2013 by eestes@tusculum.edu

An Herbs Workshop will be offered at the Doak House Museum on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sandee Cook from the Big Spring Master Gardener’s Association will lead a class on how to harvest, preserve and use herbs in the fall and winter months. Cook is a community herbalist and has a wealth of information to share about the many uses for nature’s bounty.

The fee for the class is $25, which includes lunch, an informational packet and a plant of your choice to take home.

In this workshop the participant will discover medicinal uses, how to store herbs for the coming winter, what herbs thrive in cold weather and much more. Attendees will also make a salve, lip balm and ointment to take home.

“We are thrilled to have Sandee back for another workshop,” says Site Manager Leah Walker. “Her first workshop was sold out, and we are anticipating this one will be as well.”

Reservations are required and can be made by contacting Walker at the Doak House Museum. Call 423-636-8554 or email lwalker@tusculum.edu.
