Growing and
Using Herbs 101

Our first meeting of the year will be
held on Thursday, February 5th at 7
pm in the lower level of Frederik
Meijer Gardens.  Connie Hanson who
owns Grand Shire Farm in Sand Lake
will give a tantalizing presentation
entitled Growing and Using Herbs 101.  
Herbs are easy to grow, very
fragrant, and have a wide variety of
uses. She will educate us about a
variety of herbs and edible flowers
and share ideas on growing conditions,
plant care, harvesting, and ways these
herbs can be used for cooking,
crafting, and gifts.  She will also share
some herb laced food items for our
snacking pleasure during our break and
socializing time.  Her delicious soup and
dip mixes plus her book
Recipies, Crafts, and Gifts
Grand Shire Farm will be available for
purchase following her program.
