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.

*If you would like assistance in enrolling at a facility near you, contact Dr. Paul Doughery at (585) 463-2674.
If you are retired from Cornell University or Cooperative Extension, please select your former appointment.
NOTE: The social definition of “race” has resulted in systemic institutional racism and made it more challenging for people of color to farm. We ask this question as one measure toward our goal of supporting ALL people who farm or want to farm. You can read more about this commitment in our Equity and Justice Statement on our About page.

Bailey joined the Small Farms Program in 2022. Being a military wife, she has a fond appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans, active-duty military members, and families make for our country. Her primary goal is to get to know our veterans, their backgrounds, and what transferable skills they carry from their military careers. She works to effectively support the lifestyle change they are seeking. The education, training, and resources provided afford our veterans many opportunities to explore their interests with purposeful connections to their communities through agriculture and farming.
