Come get your hands in the soil and your face in the sun while you meet your favorite healing herbs, live and in person! Your helping hands will brighten up the medicine garden and your heart will be happier for the work.
It's always beautiful in the garden, no matter the season--every month we have plants that are thriving and beautiful, ready for medicine-making or just for beauty. Often, we have abundant plants to share with garden helpers--as living plants or as part of the harvest. And while you work, you'll have the opportunity to learn about gardening, medicinal herbs, and gardening with medicinal herbs, from Master Gardener and herbalist Julie James, as well as many other gardeners, herbalists and other enthusiasts who join us each month.
The Green Wisdom Apothecary Garden is hosted by the Growing Experience Farm/Carmelitos Community Garden, and can be found in the Carmelitos Community Garden to the east of the main farm entrance (facing the farm, to the left about 500 feet). Look for the Carmelitos Community Garden sign. Address (for the Farm, not the Garden which has no official address): 750 E. Via Carmelitos.
There is no fee fo this gathering--your enthusiastic work is payment enough!
