Renee's Garden Seed Company has made us part of their new fund-raising program. The Baton Rouge Unit will receive a donation of 25% of any purchases made online, or by phone using the code FR222A when prompted at checkout. To purchase from Renee's Garden click here.
Our next meeting will be a hands-on herbal craft. We will learn how to create a small arrangement of flowers and herbs. These arrangements may be shared with a neighbor, a sick friend, or a collection of them may be used to decorate the table of a dinner party.
We will be using herbs, flowers, and other clippings to create them. To contain the arrangement, we will be using oasis and the tops of detergent jugs or spray containers.
Please bring your clippers/sturdy scissors to cut the flowers to the appropriate length. We will have the jug or spray container tops, but we would appreciate a donation of replacement caps you may have at your house. We should have plenty of herbs, flowers, and clippings at the meeting. However, if you grow flowers and herbs in your yard, we would also welcome your donations.
In addition to our presentation, we may still have a few olive trees for sale!
The trees are one year old olive trees. They are planted in one quart containers. The cost is $25 per tree. These trees will begin producing olives in four to five years. No, you won’t be able to make a large amount of olive oil with tree until many years. But you can enjoy the beautiful silver green leaves in your landscape, eat the olives, and make a healthful olive leaf extract.
Members attend all regularly scheduled meetings free, unless otherwise noted.
