Our incredible team of gardeners, organizers and community partners put on another great day of fun... this time on the subject of herbs. The dynamic duo of Josh Koppen and Lara Roketenetz engaged us all in creating decoupage planters to put our mini herb gardens they showed us how to plant in. We then made sachets with dried lavender flowers. Hmmm, hmmm what a wonderful fragrance that was!
Lunch was chock full of herbs. We had bread, herb butter, herb cheese, lavendar cookies, roasted potates with rosemary, tomato basil soup, lentil sprouts and salad. We also had chamomile and berry iced teas. We were full as little bunnies in the lettuce patch when we left.
As always we captured the fun for those of you who were unable to make it. Please feel free to check it all out at the link below.
