The pioneer herb garden was planted for cooking 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. Work with an herb specialist Judy Sigmon to learn how to start your own heritage herb garden, whether you have space for a pot or a plot. Students will take home a tray of herb seeds sown during the class as well as the knowledge of their history, how to keep them alive, and how to utilize them at harvest time.
