Want to start your own herb garden? Join horticulturist Judy Sigmon for a day of hands-on learning, helpful tips, and discussions on how to utilize the space you have, no matter the size, and achieve seed-starting success. Learn modern methods, joined with the wisdom of heritage gardeners from the 1800s. Take home several planted herbs, and learn methods of use that go outside of the kitchen.

The 19th-century herb garden was planted for cooking and preserving, as well as herbs and plants that provided purposes of medicine, fragrance, and dye. Plant placement was informed by two rich traditions, including the 17th and 18th-century European gardens and Native American practices. Learn the history and how it can inform the way we garden today.
