At this “make and take” workshop, local herbalist Becky Lipkin will share fresh herbs, seeds, cuttings and handouts on growing tips and herb recipes. Participants will learn which herbs grow best in their own backyards and what to do with them.

Lipkin is a certified aroma therapist and is known as the “Herb Lady of Cedar Creek Farms.” She is a graduate of Western Carolina University with a degree in Environmental Health Science and travels throughout the Southeast conducting seminars about how herbs can be used for medicinal purposes, in cooking and in aromatic products. 828.586.2016.
