Say it with flowers and herbs! Explore the myth, language and & lore of these enticing plants. The Herb Society of America defines “herbs” as plants valued for their “flavor, fragrance, medicinal and healthful qualities, economic and industrial uses, pest management properties and coloring materials.” We’ll share stories of flower and herbal heritage from antiquity originating from the Mediterranean, Asia, India, Middle East, and North America. We’ll discuss the invigorating partnerships of botanicals, herbs, water, and bees as nature’s beauty unfolds right before your eyes. This class if at the DBG is accompanied by a 1 hour “pathway to pollination” tour of the Desert Botanical Garden that emphasizes wildflowers, pollination (how flower’s market themselves!), bees, and our herb garden. You’ll gain understanding about the amazing benefits of edible flowers, botanicals, and herbs by creating sips, soaks and scents. All classes will take home recipes.
