Learn how to grow your own herbal medicine and boost your immune system! Join us for a warm cup of herbal tea, as we highlight the best herbal teas for your home garden! From elderberry to thyme and mullein, we will introduce a variety of perennial and annual herbs that you can grow, dry and then stock your medicine cabinet. 

This workshop will be lead by Alexis Mastromichalis from Gold Finch Designs.  Masks are required and all seating will be socially distanced at this outdoor event in the Tool Library Parking Lot.
