Herbs 101 Workshop set for botanical Garden

MADISON COUNTY – Nature’s fresh food seasonings can brighten any kitchen, and the Herb Society of Huntsville can explain how to start a lush variety of these plants.

Members of the herb society will present “Herbs 101 Workshop” on Oct. 5 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at Huntsville Botanical Garden in Murray Hall, 4747 Bob Wallace Ave.

“Why trouble yourself to grow your own herbs? There are many reasons to start an herb garden,” spokesperson Nareatha Studdard said.

Workshop participants can learn growing methods for unique herbs that shoppers cannot easily find in the grocery store. Herbs can spice up a family’s holiday table, and family members can use herbs in creating decorations for the home.

“You can snip only what you need for that recipe and not wonder what to do with the leftover herbs,” Studdard said. “You can learn to preserve herbs for the upcoming winter months. Even take teatime with organic herbs from your own garden.”

The Herbs 101 Workshop will explain the steps that a home gardener will use to start growing herbs. The presenter will identify which herbs grow well in this area. Participants will hear the necessary steps during a growing season, when to harvest and how to dry herbs.

“You can learn various ways to cook and garnish using fresh herbs. Also, you will hear ideas for using herbs in fresh flower arrangements,” Studdard said.

Seating is limited, so organizers urge interested individuals to register now. Registration deadline is Sept. 25. Cost is $15, but admission to Huntsville Botanical Garden is not required.

Class participants can pay by check to Huntsville Herb Society, in care of Pam Price, 8663 Cobblers Lane, Madison, AL 35756. If paying for more than one person, list names and emails in correspondence.
