Herbal Work Study: Spring Greens


April 7
8:15 am - 11:30 am


Memphis Botanic Garden
750 Cherry Rd
Memphis, TN 38117 United States

The first two hours will be spent weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden. The last
hour will be spent learning about edible spring greens masquerading as weeds. I will have cold water and bug spray (if needed) available, you bring your favorite hand tools for weeding and grooming (soil knives, Cape Cod weeders, old kitchen knives, trowels, pruners, gloves, etc. – no hoes or rakes needed, though). Everyone will
get to go home with a handout that includes tips and recipes. Please arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. The group will leave the building promptly at 8:30 a.m. Please dress appropriately: wearing layered clothing is suggested for this time of year. Please note: this
learning opportunity is “purchased” via a barter system: you must work the first two hours (8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.) to attend the last hour of class (10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.), making this a free event!). If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636- 4134.
