The Kaw Valley Herbs Study Group meets monthly to learn about herbs. We explore all aspects of an herb:
growing & harvesting, historical lore, culinary virtues, medicinal
merits, and aromatherapy, household, and cosmetic applications. Our
gatherings are fun and educational, and jam-packed with useful
information, including relevant demonstrations.
Our October focus herbs are Witch Hazel and Artemesia (Wormwood). In addition to our topic herbs, we will be talking about The Herbs of Halloween and Creating your Own Aromatherapy Sprays and Spells, PLUS you never know what you'll learn during our popularShare, Show, and Tellsegment.
Everyone with an interest in herbs is welcome. Please bring neither pets nor children under 10.

Drop City, filmed by Joan Grossman and Tom McCourt
with animations by Michael Krueger, is a story of whimsical innovation and the drive to create a new civilization on the
scrapheap of a wasteful society. Drop
City is widely considered to be the first hippie commune of the 1960’s and the
first to be grounded in art practice.
A short film by Gene Bernofsky, Lawrence of America (1980), will also be shown at this
screening.This film was made in
Lawrence and takes a satirical but prescient look at changing attitudes toward
economic inequality in America.
After the two screenings, director Joan Grossman, artist Michael
Krueger and dropper Gene Bernofsky will invite a conversation.
