There is more to an herb garden than meets the eye. They are sanctuaries and spaces abundant with possibilities...from nourishing foods to forage, medicines to harvest for your home herb apothecary, places for pollinators, as well as havens of peace and relaxation for humans. Cultivating certain species of at-risk herbs can even be an honorable act of planting for the future. If you're interested in diverse ways to integrate herbs into your garden and life, join longtime Master Herbalist Gigi Stafne for this enjoyable presentation that includes ecological, cultural, medicinal, and culinary uses of ten to twenty herbs.
