Container Gardening with Reni Erskine
Thursday, Sept 28, 2023
The Memphis Herb Society September 2023 program on Container Gardening will give an overview of different types of containers that can be used or made. There will also be a demonstration on how to build a self-watering container as a labor-saving and water-wise device.
Our speaker for this exciting program is MHS member Reni Erskine. Reni was born in Austria, and her family still resides in a small village in the foothills of the Austrian Alps. Like others who have made these foothills their home, Reni’s Austrian family historically relied upon the bounty of their gardens and farm for food and medicine.
The traditional practices of the area’s small Austrian farm households guide Reni’s own interest and experimentation in the home vegetable and herb garden, in the care of her chickens and bees, and also in the traditional food preservation and culinary arts
