U of I Extension to teach how-to of tea gardens

WOODSTOCK – The tradition of making and taking tea in the garden is steeped in English and Japanese history.

Today, tea gardens also provide enchanting outdoor spaces that are soothing, productive, sustainable and lovely to visit.

For a new twist on local foods, area residents can learn to create their own tea gardens.

“Tea Gardens” will be presented at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Illinois Extension office, 1102 McConnell Road, Woodstock.

Rhonda Ferree, extension educator in horticulture, University of Illinois Extension, will cover several types of tea gardens and tea garden design.

Various plants used to make tea also will be covered.

There is a $5 charge for the program.

The presentation will be via the University of Illinois telenet system and local computer PowerPoint presentations, allowing live discussion between the presenter and gardeners throughout Illinois.
