Event has passed

CAMDEN — Gardener Denise DeSpirito will lead an online webinar titled “Herbs for the Chef’s Garden,” hosted by Merryspring Nature Center, on Tuesday, September 21, at 12 p.m.

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme are familiar to all gardeners, but there are so many more herbs that enliven the cooking experience. Many of these other herbs and spices are easily grown in Maine, according to Merryspring, in a news release.

In this online program, Denise DeSpirito will talk about how to grow a great variety of culinary herbs from around the world. She will cover the classics, as well as more obscure herbs like epazote, perilla, papalo, and other plants that make for a great chef’s cutting garden.

DeSpirito is a gardener and herbalist. She has grown herbs all over the Northeast, including 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.

This talk is part of Merryspring’s Online Summer Talk series, sponsored by First National Bank.

All Online Talks will be held as Zoom webinars. Access to a computer or smart device is required. All guests must request a meeting link by emailing info@merryspring.org to attend.
