Past Event: Be Well in the Garden

Tue, June 14, 2022
Staff Garden


Gather in the staff garden with your colleagues to explore our community garden. Take a grounding stretch break, watch a simple cooking demo using ingredients from the garden (and taste the recipe!), and learn about ergonomics in the context of gardening. Registration is required to be entered into the raffle, but feel free to drop in without registering. Show up anytime within the 11:30am-1:30pm time frame, but our programming will take place between 12-1pm. Help us go green by bringing your own water bottle.

Edible Herbs

The garden includes rosemary, parsley, basil, oregano, and thyme. Using herbs in cooking is a great way to add a boost of flavor and beneficial polyphenols!
