This Saturday (April 22) at Lodestar Gardens, Linda Owens and Robin Whitlock from Sunshine Herbs in Show Low, will be giving an encore noontime presentation discussing the culinary and medicinal uses of five more common native plants. The presentation starts at 12 noon and the market starts at 11 a.m.
Linda and Robin gave their first presentation on March 25, and Saturday’s presentation will be the second installment about plants we can grow in our area (or that grow naturally) for medicine and mealtime enjoyment. Sunshine Herbs has been serving botanical remedies and organic food to our community for many years.
Please call (928) 587-1660 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a map and directions if you haven’t made a visit to Lodestar.
