Friday, August 24 at 4pm.
Has it been a while since you’ve been to Downtown Greens? Have you only been in the upper or lower garden and have been curious about the other? Are you interested in knowing more about what we actually do in the garden? Hint: it’s not just weeding! We’ve had some great groups join us for this series of informative tours of the greenspace and programs at Downtown Greens. We provide the refreshments, you just show up! Free! To rsvp or for more information, email [email protected]

Youth Farm Program summer camp for 4th-6th graders. There are just a few spots left! Includes lots of fun activities in the garden and kitchen as well as a trip to Braehead Farm. Snacks provided.

August Tea Meet-up
Monday, August 20 at 11am
Join the Herbal Arts Collective for another fun tea meet-up! To make things interesting, instead of just sipping tea and talking, Patty will bring an herbal game to play: Wildcraft! Designed by John Gallagher to teach his children about herbs. Free.

Science and Art of Herbalism
Thursday, August 30 at 7pm
For Lesson 5 of the Herbalism study group, we’ll discuss Compresses and Poultices and our Herbal First Aid Kit. If you have a kit, or some go-tos that you carry everywhere, please bring them along to show and tell. Meet in the basement of Downtown Greens (behind the building). Free.
