Lavender – Crafting and Growing

Learn about the many uses of lavender throughout history to modern day from antiseptics to culinary.  We will touch on the many different varieties of lavender then hone in on what varieties grow well in our area and what conditions help them thrive.  Crafting demonstrations will include how to make a small wreath, sachet and/or a dried wrapped bundle.  Participants will then be able to make the craft of their choice to take home. If space allows, we will also accept walk-in registration for $30.

Registration fee is $25.

Deadline to register is Friday, September 1.

 

The Barn Series of Gardening Lectures & Workshops for the Shenandoah Valley Gardener

Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners and Belle Grove Plantation have teamed up to host a series of monthly lectures & workshops from April to October 2017.  The lecture topics will focus on home gardening and using what can be grown at home. The knowledgeable instructors are members of the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association (NSVMGA).  Each monthly session will include a lecture followed by a workshop where students will put to use some new found ideas.  Attendees will go home with creations that range from garden art, starter gardens, samples of herb and tomato dips, lavender craft, and Williamsburg style holiday decorations.  Most class fees will be $25, though some classes will have an additional fee to cover the cost of materials for the workshops. Sign up for any four classes and attend the other classes at no additional charge, except for application supply fees.
