You may schedule a private class for your preferred time/date if you have at least 5 people in attendance by calling or messaging.
Have you ever wished you could figure out how to use fresh cut herbs in your cooking? How about herbal vinegars, or teas or drinks? Participants will learn about the different easy to grow types of herbs great for this Zone and will be able to select plants to take home as part of the package. Susan will guide the learners not only on how to grow, but how to care for, harvest and use these herbs in many wonderful ways.
