    Garden Club January 2021 event

    The Hopkinton Garden Club continues its Online Speaker Series with the presentation “Kitchen Herb Gardens” with Betsy Williams on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. This informative lecture covers everything one needs to know to establish and maintain a kitchen herb garden: seeds, propagation and preserving. The presentation includes ideas for herbal gifts, how to gather seeds, recipes, and where to buy plants.

    Betsy Williams teaches, lectures and writes about living with herbs and flowers. A lifelong gardener, herb grower and cook, Betsy trained as a florist in Boston and England. She combines her floral, gardening and cooking skills with an extensive knowledge of history, plant lore and seasonal celebrations. An entertaining lecturer, she weaves stories and legends throughout her informative talks and demonstrations. Betsy was a founding member of the International Herb Association and served on its governing board for six years. In 1995 and 2016 she was given the International Herb Association award for “her outstanding contributions to the herb industry.”
