Slow Food Kansas City Presents Herb Gardening Though the Eyes of Paula Winchester
Grow what you love. Love what you can use in some form or fashion. Let your passions lead the way. The past 40 plus years of Paula Winchester’s life have been devoted to the love of the herbs. She started the Herb Gathering Inc. in 1978, which now sells fresh herbs to 40 local grocery stores across both state lines. Her small, whimsical yard displays herbs, native plants, wild flowers, and whatever flora shows up on its own, as well as birds, bugs and butterflies, and all sorts of furry creatures that are roaming free.
Our class with Paula will be interactive as we learn about her yard and herbs via a scavenger hunt, sip some of the imported Chinese teas from her Twelve Winds Tea Company, and nibble on herbal munchies.
Paula will talk about the multiple uses of herbs, where and how to plant them for best results, how to get them to thrive in our Midwestern weather.
Class starts punctually at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 4th at Paula’s home in Brookside.
Please wear good walking shoes, bring your questions, and let’s have a scratch, sniff, and taste BLAST!!
