Guided Tour of Wind Ridge Herb Farm

Come tour Wind Ridge Herb Farm with us! Liz Fiorenza, owner and herb master, will give us a personalized tour of her professional herb farm. Wind Ridge is organically managed and produces both plants and herbs for retail and wholesale sales. We'll have the opportunity to learn lots about the specific herbs, including cultivation, harvest, and use plus be able to see, touch, and smell living plants. When the tour is completed you can buy cool things if you want. Liz will have herb plants (culinary and medicinal), berry plants, dried teas and more available for sale.

Caledonia is located just a bit west of Harvard, IL - about a 45 minute drive from Crystal Lake. If you'd like to carpool please post a comment to this Meetup - and then go ahead and personally contact anyone who responds. I can take a few people with me from Crystal Lake.

    Best three bucks I ever spent! Liz gave a great tour with her knowledge of plants and their medicinal uses. The herb farm was a really beautiful property with an incredible array of both common and unusual plants.

    Will the fact that Harvard Milk Days take place on Saturday cause any traffic issues? I'm unfamiliar with the area

    Hi Eilene, wonder if you could call me by noon (approx) Friday?
    I have a friend that will be taking the train from chicago and we
    will need to make plans with Cathy Cagle. Pat will take the train
    to crystal lake instead of getting off at arl hts train station. Sorry
    it is a bit complicated. Ok, so, if I do not hear from you by friday
    afternoon we will assume you are not attending or if you decide
    later to come we will see you there and perhaps I can take a ride
    back with you to arl hts. Thank you,Katherine

      Teaching all day so no phone...however, daughter just informed me that her moving was changed from Sunday to Saturday and they need my car...therefore, I can't go. Will call you and would love to know what I missed please. Hope you get a dry day for the tour.

  • Jeanette

    Hi, I sure wish I could attend this one,but can't. Do you think you will be visiting this farm again? Do they offer tours anytime or did you have to make special arrangements?

      Katherine: Will call soon to set up carpool. If Barb J wants to meet up with us in Arlington Heights near 90 W...can fit another person in my truck.

  • barbj

    I, too, would like to pay at the event, in case I have to back out at the last minute. I'm in Barrington. Anyone else coming from there?

    May 26, 2013

    • Cathy C.

      hey Barb! paying at the event will be fine for this as there is not a limit on attendance. On events with limited attendance you'd risk not being able to get in - but not for this. Hope to see you there! Cathy (I could give a ride from Crystal Lake if you wanted)

      May 26, 2013

  • Eilene

    Cathy:
    Can we pay in person...have not used online since being hacked a short time back.

    May 23, 2013

    • Cathy C.

      Yes, for this event paying in person is fine. When we have limited space it's harder to do but for this, yes.
