Cooking with Herbs Workshop

Join Kay Carnes, Master Gardener and Mid-American Gardener panelist, for a morning in Allerton’s Herb Garden. Workshop participants will receive a tour of the Garden, which is certified by the Illinois Herb Association. Learn how to grow herbs in our Central Illinois climate, and cooking tips using herbs and spices in various recipes. Then, sit down in the Greenhouse auditorium for an Italian-themed lunch prepared by Leah Bodine of the Greenhouse Café. This workshop will mostly take place outdoors with a small portion happening inside.

Park in the Main Parking Lot. Meet in the Herb Garden (just north of the Mansion).

Lunch menu:
– Classic Greek Salad with fresh herbs and feta
– Tuscan Baked Tilapia (from Koss Farms)
