Would you be prepared to make a meal from the weeds in your own backyard? Join herbalist Lynn Parkey for a hands-on class exploring the pestilent plants that many of us disregard, like stinging nettles, cleavers, dandelions, and chickweed. This class will include a plant walk-and-pick as well as a cooking demo and tasting back at the Gardens. Turn those garden-variety weeds into edible, delicious and nutritious additions to your summer diet.
Precious Metal Clay (PMC) looks and feels like clay, and after firing, it is 99.9% pure silver. Learn to use molding compounds to turn a button or other small object into an exquisite pendant. Bring a favorite button, use one of ours, or mix and match. Add a splash of color to the metal with patina, gilders paste, or colored pencils.
