Want to start gardening and learn how to build your own farmer’s market in your backyard? Want to infuse your cooking with homegrown herbs and vegetables? Interested in tasting new and varied herbs to spice up your cooking, your health, and your environment?

Join Parkway Partners for our Second Saturday session on Saturday, July 14th from 10am-12pm! Jeanette Bell, Founder and farmer of Garden on Mars, will lead us in a Kitchen Box demonstration followed by an Herb Tasting +Herb Q&A session. Learn how to build your own Kitchen Box, a 4 x 8-foot wooden garden frame with over 30 herbs and vegetables for your kitchen, to jumpstart your gardening practice, and learn how to use and taste herbs such as ginger, turmeric, and tarragon. Following the two workshops, we will tour the garden/farm/market and see several of Jeanette Bell’s 5 gardens –highlights include a bean & greens garden, fruit trees, an answer to ‘what does horseradish look like in real life?!’, chickens and their predator-deterring coop, and life lessons and stories from Jeanette Bell.
