Join Bedrock Gardens Director and Enthobotanist John Forti on an exploration of Bedrock Gardens. Together, we will search out and sample tea herbs and botanicals found in the landscape. We will blend and sip a tisane from the plants we gather, while exploring ideas for designing your own tea garden of herbal allies in order to make infusions and decorations from dried botanicals all year round.
