It may be the time of year to cut back your perennial herbs, but that doesn't mean you should have to go without their flavor and nutritional benefits all winter long. Learn unique and exciting techniques to maximize your herb harvest; infuse your vinegars, preserve favorite herbs in salt for culinary use and luxurious baths, transform them into shrubs to liven up cocktails. You'll learn how to create a stunning herb garland and you'll leave with a garland of your own creation, which can serve as a lively centerpiece and all-in-one dried herb source throughout the holiday season. Please bring hand snips if you have them (we will provide them if not). 

Stefani Bittner is the owner of Homestead Design Collective, a San Francisco Bay Area landscape design firm focused on creating beautiful gardens that provide harvest. Homestead provides design, installation, and full-service organic maintenance, harvesting, bee keeping, floristry and composting services. Homestead Design Collective recently designed and installed the new test gardens for Sunset Magazine. Stefani is the co-author of The Beautiful Edible Garden (Ten Speed Press, 2013) and Harvest: Unexpected Projects Using 47 Extraordinary Plants (Ten Speed Press, 2017). Her work has been featured in San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Sunset Magazine, Food & Wine, Time Magazine, Modern Farmer, and more. 

Sierra Vazquez is a Lead Edible Gardener with Homestead Design Collective. Previously, she farmed for the French Laundry, which evoked her passion for the plant to plate experience, rare plant varietals, and unique growing techniques. She is a third generation orchid grower from Southern California, and she spent her childhood working alongside her father and grandfather to learn the art of orchid growing. Today, she is a modern day homesteader based in Sonoma County, where she lives with five beloved chickens and grows most of her own organic produce.
