Herbal Work Study: Herbal Insect Repellents

June 12 from 8:15 am-11:30 am

Herbal Work Studies are generally offered on the second Saturday of the month. General information has changed due to Covid. Here are the current instructions. Please check our website or Facebook page prior to attending any of the Herbal Work Studies as the information may change: 8:30 am.-11:30 pm. All three hours will be spent outside. The event will be canceled if it is raining. Please bring a mask-you are required to wear one whenever you enter a building on property at the Botanic Garden. Six feet spacing is encouraged. We will be weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden or Iris Garden.  As we work, we will learn about the topics listed.  I will have sunscreen, bug spray, and hand sanitizer available. Bring your own gloves. If you have a hand tool you like to use, please bring that. Please dress appropriately: sun hats and closed toe shoes are suggested. Handouts will be available by email to participants.  Please enter through the Visitors’ Center at the north end of the parking lot. Check in at the desk to see what garden we will be in, and then come on out to that garden as you arrive. If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636-4134.
