July Programs at Shepherd’s Corner

Mary Not Quite Contrary: Cultivating Culinary & Medicinal Tea Herbs

Do you grow herbs and find yourself wondering what you can use them for? This program will be led by Mary Rodney of Seeds Well Sown, located in New Albany, Ohio. Mary grows some of the herbs that are used in the creation of her teas right here at Shepherd’s Corner! This program will focus on tea herbs, but we’ll talk about and taste some culinary herbs as well.

Join us in learning how Mary started her business & why she gardens. We will be tasting and touring the garden at Shepherd’s Corner.
