March 17 HCMGA Meeting

Speaker:  Linda Riski-Lindorff

Topic:  “Flavor Your Life with Herbs

While many different herbs are available in almost every food market, many gardeners delight in the culture of herbs and growing their own. Some of us grow only a few kinds perhaps, because we don’t know how to use them.

Program speaker for the March 17 general meeting will be HCMGA member Linda Riski-Lindorff who will give us an overview on growing herbs, with an emphasis on new varieties of old favorites as well as introduce some that are lesser known. She will discuss ways to preserve your harvest, and since she loves experimenting with herbs in cooking, she will offer tips on what to pair with foods.

As a city girl who grew up on a small lot in Chicago, Linda did not attempt serious gardening until 2007 when she became a member of HCMGA. She has served as a co-President of HCMGA, chairperson of the Picket Fence Herb bed, and worked on several committees (i.e., AAS Veggie Bed, Greens Workshop and the Plant Sale). She is a registered pharmacist, holds a BS in Pharmacy from Creighton University, and is a member of the Herb Society of Central Indiana and the Herb Society of America.
