The University of Illinois Extension Livingston County Master Gardeners and the Yost House Museum are partnering for a program about herbs on Saturday, August 20 from 1 to 2 p.m. on the grounds of the Yost House. The house will also be open for tours from 1 to 5 p.m. on that day.

The program titled "Rub, Scrub and Relax in the Tub" is workshop on herbal preparations for culinary and personal care. Connie Kostelc, Livingston County Master Gardener has experiments with a variety of uses for herbs including culinary, medicinal and personal care. She will be sharing a couple of basic recipes that can be modified to be used in both culinary and personal care items.

This will be a "make it and take it" with participants having the chance to choose their own herbal combinations to be used in their basic recipe. Refreshments will be served after the program. There is no cost to attend and advance registration is not required. For more information, contact the Livingston County Extension office at (185) 842-1776.
