Growing and preserving your own herbs is a good way to reduce the need to purchase fresh and dried herbs which more often than not, come in plastic packaging. Martina Hoeppner from Dandelion Permaculture will discuss choosing the right plants for the right season, easy ways to propagate and grow herbs in Perth and what to do with the gluts you get, including some of the different ways to preserve herbs and the food safety considerations and issues that can arise. Martina will also demonstrate how to make a tea from home-grown herbs and provide a seasonal snack featuring herbs for attendees to try.
Suitable for adults and young people aged 12 and over.
