Gardener and herbalist Denise DeSpirito will lead a walking tour of the herb garden at Merryspring Nature Center, located at 30 Conway Road in Camden, on Tuesday, September 22, at noon.

Now is a good time of year to harvest herbs. DeSpirito will lead attendees around the herb garden to see what is blooming and to inspect recent additions, and she will speak about how to harvest different plants and their seeds. Questions are welcome.

DeSpirito has grown herbs all over the Northeast, including at Avena Botanicals in Rockport, Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in New York and Farmacy Herbs in Rhode Island. She currently serves as garden manager at Merryspring.

The program is part of the Summer Talk series at Merryspring.

Participants are asked to wear face coverings and weather-appropriate clothing. The cost is $5, free for Merryspring members. Registration is required; phone 236-2239 or email info@merryspring.org. Attendees are encouraged to bring exact change to minimize cash transactions.
