Each season, I am excited to work with many of our long-time instructors to offer great learning experiences through our Garden Culture classes. This month, I am happy to introduce a new instructor to our line up—Christine Shuck.
Christine is a writer, artist, community education instructor and homeschool mom who lives in Kansas City. A confirmed auto-didact (self-learner), Christine enjoys a wide range of interests including permaculture and organic gardening, DIY projects, cooking, arts and crafts and keeping chickens and bees.
This month, Christine will be your guide to cooking and preparing dishes and teas with fresh and dried herbs. Reap all of the flavor and health benefits from cooking with herbs as Christine shows you multiple ways to use them. Register now for Cooking with Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, on Saturday, July 19—the class includes samples to taste!
When not busy renovating her 1893 Victorian home, you will find Christine in her garden pulling weeds and tending her chickens. In winter you will find her inside writing, decorating, or creating art. Christine has written three books and maintains three blogs.
Christine’s other interests include Zentangle, an art form of creating beautiful images with repetitive patterns that is well suited for both novice artists and seasoned professionals. Christine recently displayed her Zentangle artwork at Maker Faire Kansas City and will offer an introductory course at Powell Gardens this fall.
