Drying herbs for cooking and tea blends: Join farmer Ember to tour the herb garden and learn about various herbs you can dry to use in the winter months or to make into your very own tea blends. Gather herbs and learn to dry and store them. Discuss what herbs to include in your tea based on personal preference and medicinal properties. Each participant will leave with fresh herbs to dry on their own as well as a tea blend that you will mix with previously dried herbs from the farm.
