Growing Herbs for Flavor, Nutrition, and Health – Workshop Saturday June 10th at 9am

June 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The CCGA Education Committee is hosting a new culinary herb workshop!

Learn how to grow, cook, preserve and make simple home remedies with herbs in this informative and tasty workshop about the wide range of herbs easily grown in our Chicago gardens. Chef and farmer Sarah Mallin will lead the workshop. She is owner of Pyrite Sun and creator of The Physic Garden at Breanne Heath’s, The Pie Patch Farm in Back of the Yards. The workshop will guide community gardeners through how to nurture herbs in their gardens and use them in the kitchen, beverages, and a home remedy repertoire.

We’ll explore the special properties of herbs that make them so flavorful and nutritious and why some people taste herbs like cilantro differently than others. Sarah will have a wide range of herb samples from The Physic Garden at The Pie Patch available for tasting, as well as demo samples of pesto, tea, and tinctures.

The class will begin with a short lecture on the history and uses of herbs, followed by growing and preserving advice and a sensory exploration of herb samples. Sarah will then provide samples of pesto and tea, explaining how to make your own at home, followed by a Q & A time.

Date: Saturday June 10th at 10am

Location: Chicago Center for Green Technology (CCGT), 445 N. Sacramento Blvd. Chicago IL 60612.
