Grow Your Own Produce: Berries, Herbs, and Water Catchment

This workshop will focus on different types of fruiting crops that are available right now. We will taste different varieties and discuss recipes and ways to put up the harvest of berries.  In addition, many herbs can be dried for tea or medicine. We'll learn practices for collecting and drying herbs for your home.  Our bioregion has a long drought period during the summer.  We will talk about water catchment and how to determine what type of system would work best for your household.  

As always, this class will highlight what is happening in the garden in July, how to preserve your harvest, and prepare for the coming month.  Handouts will include a to do list for the month, herbs for tea, and other pertinent information.  This workshop may be offered outdoors in a location(s) to be announced, most likely in SE Portland.  Please contact Marisha if the location determines whether you can join us or not.  Cost is $100 for the 5 class series or $25 per class.
