One of the greatest resources that herbalists in our area have is the Memphis Botanic Garden Herb Garden and its curator, Sherri McCalla! And, one of the best ways to learn is by participating in the garden’s Work Study Program which takes place once a month on the second Saturday. After volunteering in the Herb Garden, in the shade no less, we tasted a vegetable from the Herb Garden, Malabar Spinach, which one of our volunteers cooked to perfection! No leftovers!! To cap off the experience, Sherri taught us how to make a fragrant salve. Each participant chose their favorite essential oil fragrance combination. Truthfully, it was fun! ~~Reni Erskine
