Gardening and Nature



with Brigit McCallum

Calendar Apr 12, 2023 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Tried composting and it didn’t seem to work? Are you afraid of inviting pests if you try? There are some important ingredients to composting that make the difference in developing the “black gold” that can both transform your waste and nourish your gardens. We’ll cover types of composting and containers, components of successful composting in rural and urban settings, and common problems in composting and their solutions. Please pre-register as we need a minimum of 4 people to run this class.

About Brigit: An avid gardener, researcher and teacher, Brigit loves teaching classes where everyone learns new things, and where she goes home having learned more herself, for her own gardens, and for teaching future classes.




with Amolette Herbal Apothecary Staff

Calendar Apr 29, 2023 at 9 am, runs for 1 week

Join us at Amolette Herbal Apothecary for a one-hour private mini-class on supporting the immune system. There will be practicing herbalists from the apothecary on-site to answer your questions on what is an herbalist, what they do, and how to incorporate herbs into your life. The Apothecary itself will be closed to the public for the duration so that only class attendees will be in the space. Each participant will also leave with an elderberry syrup herb kit, instructions, and handouts. Pre-registration is required due to limited space.
