They will discuss some of these plants and their meaning and make-and-take a lavender sachet.
  • March 14: Easter Egg Gourds- Fun and relatively easy to grow, gourds come in many shapes and sizes. Join gourd-growers in a session to learn about growing and curing various gourds and decorate some Easter Egg gourds to take home.
