Veteran Registration for the Free In-Person Workshop “Exploring Culinary and Medicinal Herbs”

Would you like to expand your use of culinary and medicinal herbs? Join the Farm Ops team, Nina and Bailey, at Centurion Farm, LLC in Locke, NY on August 20, 2022 from 11:00am – 2:00 pm. You are welcome to stay from 2-3 pm to continue exploring the gardens and ask questions.

We will walk through the gardens and discuss the many herbs growing on Centurion Farm, such as lemon balm, echinacea, St. John’s wort, calendula, California poppy, catnip, chamomile, comfrey, garlic, lavender, motherwort, nettle, thyme, tulsi (Holy Basil), several culinary basil varieties, dill, cilantro, and parsley.  You will have the opportunity to sample many herbs fresh from the plant, in medicinal teas, and in some tasty mid-day snacks.

Attendees will receive Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide and herbal giveaways from the farm.  Mileage reimbursement forms will be available and can be submitted that day.

This event has concluded.

Bailey joined the Small Farms Program in 2022 as a veterans project associate with Farm Ops. She has a fond appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans, active-duty military members, and their families make for our country as many close to her have served. Her work supports veterans who wish to explore or further their agricultural ventures with educational resources, training, and opportunities to network with other farmer veterans. Her goal is that veterans ultimately find a renewed sense of purpose through agriculture in their communities.
