Join us for the virtual version of our popular herb gardening and mixology class!  Learn how to grow and take care of herbs at home, even if you only have indoor space.   We’ve assembled a custom kit with seedlings, gardening necessities and cocktail ingredients (plus a few gifts from us!) for pickup at World of Whirlpool to accompany this virtual experience. 

Local gardening expert Emily Cross will lead everyone in planting their own small herb pot that can thrive in a kitchen or on a balcony.  Then our chef will show you how to turn those herbs into a festive spring mocktail or cocktail–we’ll provide everything but the alcohol!  We’ll also be joined by a Maytag laundry expert who will share a few tips on getting dirty garden messes out of your clothes, shoes, and tools.   

IMPORTANT: We cannot ship or deliver kits. Kits must be picked up at the World of Whirlpool on 4/20 between 3pm – 6pm CT or 11am-5pm on 4/21. Call us at (312) 840-8050 when you arrive and we can bring your kit to your car curbside at 331 N LaSalle Dr., Chicago, IL 60654. The live workshop is on 3/16 from 5:30pm-7:00pm CT via Zoom. You will receive the Zoom dial-in instructions sent to the email used for registration 2 days before the virtual workshop.
