– Samples of Somerville-grown and brewed herbal tea

Event Details: Wednesday, August 4th, 2010 from 5:30-7:00pm at the Argenziano School Garden at 290 Washington St  (garden around back)

Tai Dinnan, Arielle Maldonado, & GWS Garden Youth Crew will lead this fun and interactive workshop. Do you have herbs in your yard that you never eat? Do you miss herbs and teas from your native country? Come learn how to grow and dry herbs and make tea! If you eat local produce, why not drink local tea??
