About 10 people came to the first herb workshop Saturday in Florence, but more sessions will continue every third Saturday until September.
Phoebe Janzen, one of the organizers, said the herbs covered for the day were lavender (edible) and calendula.
Karyn Woodward, presenting the information, provided everyone with recipes for lavender lemonade, lavender cookies, lavender hair rinse, calendula salve and oil.
One of the people at the workshop, Trayce Warner, said the focus of each workshop will differ, but it’s her understanding they will all be at Woodward’s “Villa on the Prairie,” 111 W. Sixth St.
As for the herb workshop, Warner said, “it was awesome and, with a lot of good information being presented.”
According to Janzen, all the workshops will begin at 10 a.m. and advance registration is required, but the workshops are open to everyone.
