‘Plants for Chef Garden’ Merryspring webinar

Camden – Gardener Denise Despirito will host an online webinar called “Plants for Chef Garden” hosted by Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, September 21 at 12 noon.

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme are common to all gardeners, but there are many more herbs that stimulate the cooking process. Many of these other herbs and spices are easily grown in Maine, according to Mary.

In this online program, Denise Despirito talks about how many different plants grow around the world. It covers the old ones, as well as the more obscure plants that are used for the great pruning garden, such as Epazotte, Perila, Papillo and others.

DeSpirito is a horticulturist. She has grown plants all over the Northeast, including the Avena Plant in Rockport, the Food and Agriculture Center in New York, and the Rhode Island Farm. She is currently working as a garden manager at Merryspring.

This talk is part of a series of Merryspring Online Summer Speeches sponsored by the First National Bank.

All online conversations are held as zoomed websites. You need access to a computer or smart device. To attend, all guests must request a meeting link by email at info@merryspring.org.

Online chats are open to everyone, free of charge.
