Event description
Learn everything about the wonderful world of herbs – from growing to harvesting techniques.

About this Event

Rita Wollmering returns to The Herb Society of America's NorthEast Seacoast Unit and the Strawbery Banke Museum to bring us the Joy of Herbs. Start thinking spring and all the possibilities that a new growing season brings with this fun and educational event. Rita will teach us everything about the wonderful world of herbs from organic growing conditions (sunlight, soil, fertilizer, water) to harvesting techniques and preserving your herbal bounty (vinegars, oils, honeys, cleaning products) and so much more.

About Rita: Rita Wollmering is the founder, manager and grower of The HERB FARMacy. She grew up on her family’s 500 acre dairy farm in Minnesota. Like some farm kids, she wanted to experience the wide world, so she joined the Peace Corps and worked on agricultural projects in the Philippines. After her graduate studies, Rita continued her international work with USDA and USAID in Washington, DC until her urge to get “back to the farm” led her to pursue her herb farming ambitions. While working year round on the farm and greenhouses, she takes her “break” doing international volunteer work on the USAID Farmer-to-Farmer Program, most recently working with medicinal herb production in Nepal and Sri Lanka.
