Herbs have been used for food and healing, by all cultures, for thousands of years. This workshop will teach you how to design, plant and maintain your own herb garden, from a small container herb collection to a large decorative herb garden. It will also teach you how to propagate your own plants from seeds and cuttings.
The following topics will be covered.
