Discover the Grounds: Native Herbs

Nature Talk/Lecture
Bellows/Cassatt Rooms
No Registration Required

Come learn about the surprising power of some of the natural world’s most versatile inhabitants: herbs!

A part of Nature Weekends, join us in this free indoor discussion as we explore the range of properties and uses for native and wild herbs of Arkansas. Learn about the aromatic, culinary and medicinal properties of herbs that grow all around the landscape of Northwest Arkansas. Led by Tina Wilcox, head gardener and herbalist at the Ozark Folk Center’s Heritage Herb Garden in Mountain View, guests will increase their understanding of herbs and the roles they can play in our native landscapes, homes and gardens.

We’ll also be hosting a book signing with Tina after the event, featuring her book The Creative Herbal Home. Guests can pre-order their copy for pickup at the workshop, place an order for shipping, or purchase a copy on the spot while visiting with the author!

So come grow your knowledge with us and cultivate a love of nature. See you there!
