7pm Innis House- Inniswood Metro Gardens
Free program open to the public:
Fiber Dyeing with herbs presented by Kim Johnson of Lock Lomond Studio of Etsy.
Ms. Johnson will cover the dye plants that grow or can be gathered in Ohio with basic dyeing instructions and materials you can use in dyeing. Light refreshments will be served.
The Central Ohio Unit has a plant sale held the first weekend in May. Our quarterly meetings typically feature a guest speaker while our open board meetings cover business matters. Please contact our chairperson for schedules and details on upcoming meetings.
Our garden is located inside Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio. Just north and east of Columbus, Ohio, the herb garden delights members and visitors from far and wide – whether for a day’s jaunt or a need to be awed with herbal beauty and serenity. The jewel of the garden is our thyme collection. Some of our other specialty gardens include trial, culinary, knot, medicinal, biblical, bee, and fragrance gardens.
The Central Ohio Unit's mission is to educate the public by example as to the merit, culture, design, and uses for herbs. The passive demonstration gardens are augmented by educational programming and publications.
Each Sunday through October, there will be a representative in the Herb Garden of Inniswood Metro gardens from 1:30pm to 3:30pm to point out interesting facts and answer your questions. Please come and enjoy our gardens!!!
