Friday, January 20th meeting features Rose Loveall, owner of the Morningsun Herb Farm, speaking on Herbal All-stars for the California Dry Garden.
The family-owned nursery and display gardens have been in operation since 1995. They grow over 500 species of herbs, vegetables, unusual and drought-tolerant perennials and pollinator plants. They specialize in a huge selection of lavenders, propagating over 45 varieties in their greenhouses. Their display gardens, located in their family walnut orchard, are wonderful teaching tools for gardeners, chefs, herbalists, and crafters. The gardens are also used by amateur photographers and artists for inspiration. You may bring a picnic to relax in the gardens, and some extra treats to share with their donkeys (although they may post special diets due to doctor's orders). They also offer workshops and tours and participate in the Pleasants Valley Agriculture Association and the Yolo Solano Lavender Trail. Check out the videos they have posted on their You Tube Channel.
