January - The Interesting Life of Herbs
At the January meeting, Gail Rice, Head Weeder at McConnell House Herb Garden in Wurtland, KY, presented some great information about the various uses of herbs. We were pleased with some of the more “unusual” qualities of herbs. Gail is a member of the Kentucky Herb Association.
Project Update:Stemming from the “Writing from Your Life Workshop” in May, KYOWA members Helen, Cathie and Mary volunteered time and resources at the Kings Daughters & Sons Home for Aged Men & Women. In house volunteers gathered Christmas memories from many of the residents. The stories were then compiled into booklets to share with family and friends.
