Herbal Tea Chains

Wednesday, March 9, 2011. Lori Weidehammer led us in a herbal tea chain workshop where participants learned to identify health-giving herbs, dried fruits and spices. While enjoying the pleasure of each others company, community members created herbal tea chains to take home to make their own infusions.

Cultivating Connections

The herb garden is being developed as a long term project/ program called CULTIVATING CONNECTIONS- at the Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre. Please look for workshops beginning February 2010 on this blog and for more information: http://www.mysunset.net/macc.htm

In the middle of October we will be planting winter garlic with a group of students from the neighbouring school, Moberly Elementary. We will keep you updated on all activities on the blog- so follow us here!

Why a herb garden?
The aromatic qualities of herbs have long served to stimulate the mind, ward off illness, provide perfume and to flavour and season our meals. Many of the healing herbs in the garden have glorious blossoms that attract bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. When you visit please enjoy watching the wildlife and feel free to touch and smell the herbs. Space has been left for the community to add specimen herbs and spices to the garden. If you have any particular plant you would like to find in the Moberly garden please contact Cyndy Chwelos at cyndy.chwelos@vancouver.ca
