Get Ready for a Home-Grown Herb Sachet Project!

21 Oct

I’ve always wanted to hold a workshop for making sweet and fresh sachets filled with dried herbs and flowers from CVEarthlab garden. In addition to all the rosemary, oregano, and other kitchen herbs, the garden is filled with mountain mint and lemon balm. The latter herbs have spread by self seeding, and now grow wildly.  They aren’t appropriate for tea as they grow in non-edible ground soil, but they’re still great for scent.

Prep for Homemade Sachet Making NOW

Before the CVEarthlab garden is winterized on the weekend of Nov 10th; we’ll hold some quickie herb and flower harvesting sessions.  Participants will be invited to snip and cut flowers and stems of delicious smelling lavender, lemon balm, calendula, mint and more. We’ll label and dry the cuttings in paper bags, store and use them for a sachet-making workshop in December. (Stocking stuffers!!!)

Sound good?  If you know you or your kids want to be involved in harvesting, please send a note to  We will likely host multiple harvesting sessions over the coming weeks but these will be weather contingent and likely announced last minute.   Thanks!  -Denise
