Deer Creek Farm Hosts DIY Classes
May 28, 2014 07:39AM
Kathy and Jesse Lesher will host three summer seminars at Deer Creek Farm, which they founded more than 20 years ago. The farm grows more than 400 varieties of potted herbs, perennials and shade plants using organic potting soil and fertilizer. Kathy leads more than 20 different workshops.
Coconut oil is the topic of the June 22 presentation. Attendees receive a 15-ounce jar of unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil and learn to make cold-sore remedy lip balm to take home. Fresh herbs from the farm will be used to create three delicious herbal vinegars on July 19. Participants finish the bottling with beeswax seals that create a nice look for a gift. On August 24, children and adults alike will enjoy sampling and learning about wheatgrass juice, raw vegetable and fruit juicing and smoothies and their health benefits.
Deer Creek Farm is located on the Berks/Lancaster County border, a mile north of Adamstown. Throughout the summer, flowers and herbs are grown, harvested and dried for creating dried arrangements, wreaths and centerpieces, and custom orders are accepted.
Costs: $18, Jun. 22; $18, Jul. 19; $9, Aug. 24. All events begin at 2 p.m. Location: 3721 Deer Creek Rd., Reading. For more information, call 610-775-4504, email [email protected] or visit DeerCreekHerbFarm.com.
