Event Description
The class includes learning how to propagate plants such as cilantro, parsley, lavender, thyme, marjoram, basil, and more. These annuals, biennials, and perennials will grow into medicinal, ornamental, and culinary herbs that you can sell and/or enjoy for your business or pleasure. 

Rusty and Claire, having 20 years of experience at Quiet Creek, will lead you in this hands-on class, teaching you how to propagate plants from seeds, cuttings, root layerings, and tubers. Cost analysis (retail and wholesale) will be outlined for your financial decision making. 

You will go home with a variety of plants and your newfound knowledge to sustain your herbs for a lifetime. This is the bargain class of the year (your propagation tray is worth over $100). Please enjoy the locally prepared and grown luncheon from Quiet Creek included with your registration fee.
