Seven Springs Speaker Spotlight: Tammi Hartung, Herbalist

| 8/5/2011 11:16:27 AM

Get to know Tammi Hartung of Desert Canyon Farm. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Tammi HartungIn one presentation I will be talking about all the different ways one might bring herbs into one’s daily lifestyle. That might be cooking a delicious barbeque meal with chicken and rosemary, or pampering yourself or one of your friends by preparing an herbal foot bath with lavender and California poppy flowers! We will explore how to make your own herbal honey with ginger and cinnamon, and the steps of tincturing the Echinacea that is growing in your garden. Herbs can and should fit into every part of one’s daily schedule, so this is the talk that will help you discover all the ways to make that happen.

In my second presentation I will be sharing how easy it is to harvest your own herbs from your garden, patio planters or windowsill/tabletop pots. In addition, we will talk about the various methods of storing your harvested herbs. I will be talking about the simple tools that will be needed to both harvest and store herbs. I will also be talking about several specific herbs and their individual needs when it comes to when to harvest and how to process and store them.

In my third presentation I will cover the various steps of designing your own herb garden. We will look at how to determine the garden’s location, what you might want to explore in terms of hard-goods for the garden (pathways, focal points, benches, etc.), and how to plan the theme of the herb garden – whether that is culinary use, a blue herbal garden, a medicinal garden, a patio herb garden, a children’s herb garden, or even mixing it up by planting herbs and other food plants together for a super-practical garden. Really, the possibilities are endless. I will give suggestions of how a number of different herbs might fit into the garden design based on their growing requirements and how they fit into the theme of the design.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees?
