Rebecca Kuick, Wellness Educator

Why make kombucha? What the heck is it?

  • “Kombucha is a fermented tea drink that’s made by adding yeast and a culture of bacteria to a mixture of black or green tea, sugar, and sometimes additional flavorings or fruit juice.” Learn more here
  • It’s loaded with probiotics to improve overall health, especially gut health and the immune system!
  • Easy & fun
  • Inexpensive! Pennies per serving

Rebecca will discuss the health benefits of kombucha, including what makes it so healthy, and then provide a step-by-step demonstration on how to make and bottle kombucha. There will be kombucha tasting of several different flavors as well as ample time for Q&A from the class.

Each person will receive directions and their very own S.C.O.B.Y. to start making kombucha at home!

S.C.O.B.Y. = Symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast = essential to making kombucha

Spring Blooms at the Garden @ Green Bay Botanical Garden
Cost: Free/GBBG Member; Garden Admission/General Public
May 1 @ 9:00 am – 8:00 pm

Spring FountainSpring’s splendor will take your breath away with more than 300,000 blooms!

This spring, the sultry Flama Verna tulip sprinkled among The Top 40 daffodil blend will welcome you in the parking lot. As you enter the Fischer Visitor Center, be sure to take a peek at the Cretaceous tulip. This is a unique peony flowering tulip, so you might not recognize it at first glance!

Once you’re in the garden, just wander and look for some of the new tulips blooming this year. In front of the Schierl Wellhouse is a tulip blend called Calm Cool Collective, something we can all aspire to and something we hope you’ll feel while walking the grounds!

Planted in front of the Mable Thome Fountain this year is a blend of Mascotte (light pink) and Honeymoon (white) tulips. These tulips are fascinating and unlike many other tulips because the edges of their petals are fringed.

Framing the Kaftan Lusthaus is a blend of purple and pink peony flowering tulips called Beyond Baroque. Several steps away, the Stumpf Belvedere also has an eye-catching combination of the hot-colored lily flowering tulip, Fire Wings, with the dark maroon fringed tulip Vincent Van Gogh.

Mother Nature permitting, flowers bloom throughout May. Peak bloom is anticipated mid-May through the end of the month.
