Elderberry Syrup Making Class

August 12th, 2017 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Elderberries are starting to ripen! It’s the perfect time to learn all about this trusted traditional remedy for keeping you and your family healthy. We will be in the garden with the elderberries, learning about how they grow, what their seasons are normally like (and how this year has been different), which parts of the plant to use and which to avoid and so much more! We will harvest from Garden Dreams’ own plants to make our syrup during this class. Everyone will get to take home a 1 ounce bottle of this precious purple liquid from our batch that day, as well as a recipe guideline and some hands-on know how.
