Glen Valley Organic Farm's resident herbalist, Barb Hinde, is offering four herb walks this season. All walks will take place at Glen Valley Organic Farm.
Come and walk through the herb garden as well as the farm's 8 acres of forest. See how the plants grow in cultivated gardens as well as in their natural habitat. Learn about building your own backyard herb garden by understanding the seasonal growing cycle, learning which herbs grow best in this environment, and how to incorporate herbs -- both culinary and medicinal -- into your gardening and cooking.
Dazzle your senses as you touch, taste and feel the herbs and learn how nature has the potential to support good health. Dress comfortably for the weather; we walk rain or shine.
Each walk will highlight herbs in season as the garden and forest floor change and offer an array of herbal options.
