Herbs have a job of making ordinary meals into something special. A bit of this and a pinch of that will convert a pedestrian dinner into a feast. Herbs can turn food for the body into mana for the spirit. Their special colors and fragrances can bring variety and interest to an otherwise bland garden landscape. They belong in the garden planted either by themselves or mixed with other vegetables or flowers.
In this class, the participants will learn the benefits of herb growing and their use from cooking, medicinal, and healing to beauty. We will also cover the soil conditions for a beautiful and healthy herb garden. The attendees are encouraged to bring their own soil sample from their production plot for FREE pH analyses.
A part of the discussion will be area farming as source of local herbs shopping. A ‘Fresh Market Local Food’ guide, including Monroe County Farmers’ Market Guide 2017 will be provided.
