CAMDEN — Gardener Denise DeSpirito will lead a tour of Merryspring’s herb gardens on Tuesday, August 27, at 12 p.m.

In this installment of her Backyard Herbalism series, DeSpirito will lead a comprehensive tour of Merryspring’s herb gardens, now in their late season. She will discuss how to harvest and use plants, and let the questions and plants be the guide on this stroll through the garden.

Denise DeSpirito is 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 program is part of the Summer Talk series at Merryspring, sponsored by The First National Bank and Jaret & Cohn Real Estate. The cost of this program is $5, free for members of Merryspring.  This is an outdoor program. Guests should wear weather appropriate clothing.

Merryspring is a community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round. The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
