Herb Guild meeting to feature garden cleanup, mushroom expert
The May 13 meeting of the Herb Guild Garden Club will be held at the Rose Hill Herb Garden, which is located in Cahoon Park between Wolf Road and Lake Road in Bay Village. The herb garden is located near the Cahoon House in the park and has been the longest supported garden effort by the Herb Guild. Volunteer teams tend to the garden monthly, weeding and watering as needed.
The meeting will start at 10 a.m., followed by a vigorous workout in the garden to spruce it up after the long, hard winter. Members are asked to bring garden gloves and tools.
John Burmeister, who was rescheduled for the May meeting, will be the guest speaker. He is the owner of Valley City Fungi, which is a small, family-owned farm in Valley City. They specialize in growing organic mushrooms and supply their product to local farmers’ markets and area restaurants. Mr. Burmeister will speak on how the home gardener can grow their own gourmet mushrooms.
As always, new members and guests are always welcome. For further information on the upcoming meeting, call 440-652-6890 or visit theherbguild.org.
