Kitchen Herbs for Health

You deserve to spend an afternoon having this much fun!

Did you know that simply by putting oregano on your pizza or black pepper on your scrambled eggs you are adding herbs to your daily life? The foods and spices that we consume can have a big impact on our overall level of health. Join us for this informative workshop as we explore the historical, traditional, and modern day medicinal uses of common kitchen herbs.

This FREE class will take place in our Community Room.

Our "Eat Your Weeds" nature walk was a great success! Sixteen people attended this special herb walk presented on Saturday, September 11th, 2004, at North Park Village Nature Center. Teri Owens talked about herbs (weeds to most people) that have traditionally been used as culinary and medicinal resources by native peoples. She also included some now wild plants transplanted from other parts of the country and overseas.
