Herb Garden Tour and Tea Tasting in partnership with The Common Market
June 30, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Enjoy a tour of Fox Haven’s herb garden and learn about the plants that are ripe for a tea tasting. We’ll explore the stories and senses that fill the garden, then, harvest a few herbs to brew for a cup or two. As we enjoy the different flavors and aromas, we will discuss the energetics of the harvested plants so you can build an understanding of how the herbs are working in your body. This experience is perfect for anyone with an interest in gardening or herbalism, seeking to engage on a sensory level.
