How to Care for Your Basil

June 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This workshop is a chance to explore the historic 1897 Frick Pittsburgh Greenhouse, then learn all about growing and caring for many different varieties of basil. After a quick tour of the Greenhouse we will move to the Education Center for a hands-on workshop led by Hanna Mosca, Frick Greenhouse and Shiloh Farm Manager, and some basil-infused refreshments. Participants will learn about proper harvest techniques, disease & pest management, and how to take cuttings to grow more basil plants.

Before you leave be sure to check out the Grow Pittsburgh seedling sale, which will be in full swing! $18; Advance registration and pre-payment required. Price includes workshop, basilseedling, and refreshments. Program will take place rain or shine.
