Don’t miss out on the chance to get involved in our Garden Commons activities this semester!
Herb & Tea Workshop
Friday, Sept. 15th, 12-1pm, Garden Commons at the Cultural Center
Think herbs are just tasteless, dry flakes from a jar?! You don’t know what you’ve been missing! Join us in UofL’s organic garden for a workshop about how to use & dry the herbs we’ll harvest from the garden. There’ll be ample sampling opportunities with a fresh herbal tea bar!
Canning & Pickling Workshop
Friday, Sept. 22nd, 12-1pm, Garden Commons at the Cultural Center
Don’t know what to do with all that excess produce from the garden?! Canning and pickling are great solutions for preserving firmer veggies like cucumbers, okra, green beans, beets, carrots, radishes, summer squash, and more! Join us in UofL’s organic garden for a fun, hands-on workshop about how to can and pickle vegetables so you can continue eating out of your garden all winter long! We’ll have some things to work with, but feel free to bring any excess produce you’d like to can; mason jars, lids & bands; as well as any particular whole spices (like peppercorns and mustard seeds), vinegar, and/or salt you’d like to contribute.
Garden Commons Fall Workdays
Fridays, Noon-1pm, Garden Commons at the Cultural Center
Join us in UofL’s organic garden for our group workdays! Learn (by doing) how to grow hyper-local, super-delicious vegetables, herbs, and fruits! Anyone can work in the garden any time, but we’ll gather together every Friday throughout the fall semester (Aug. 25 – Dec. 8) from noon to 1pm to plant, weed, water, and harvest. No prior experience necessary. Tools & gloves provided. The Garden Commons is open to participation any time from students, staff, faculty, and community members. Everyone who comes is welcome to share in the harvest! Connect with us and get all the details on our Facebook Page.
