Join us in High Falls for our annual birthday celebration! This year we combine education with celebration, getting down and dirty in the very first Ger-Nis garden. Our new upstate headquarters is primed & ready for our first garden- all it needs is a wholehearted day of TLC and merry making. For our birthday this year, all we ask for is a little help from our friends! In good Ger-Nis gratitude, we’ll give back tenfold. Our garden worker bees will enjoy classic delicious, herbal Ger-Nis fare all day long while we keep busy in the great outdoors. Garden goers will gain hands-on experience, knowledge and tips on building a lush, beautiful garden. We’ll install raised beds, prepare topsoil, build trellises for sprawling spring beans and peas, set up rain gutter beds of lettuce and strawberry, and make hanging baskets of flowers, herbs, flowers and more herbs. See garden design in action and learn how to make the best use of space from the pros! We’ll build a compost section, a hoop house and a seed starting hot bed and start seeds indoors for later season transplants. Working hard has never felt so good, especially for all our city friends who haven’t had access to lush open space like we have! Alongside our herbalicous food will be our signature seasonal herbal sodas and VIP access to an herbalicous garden bar for celebrating in style! We’ll be pumping up the jams and keeping those wheelbarrows in motion. Don’t forget to bring your gloves and some sun screen. Come for the entire day or just stop by for some grub!
