One of the most enduring and delightful aspects of growing and using herbs is the immense opportunity they offer for collaboration across generations. They provide a venue to explore the past, experience the present and a hope for the future. Everyone needs a daily dose of green and ultimately herbs appeal to each of the five senses.

Sprouting acorn; October 22, 2014 " One says October; one says Nature lies down to sleep; the gardener knows better, and will tell you that October is as good as the month of April. You ought to know that October is the first spring month, the month of underground germination and sprouting, of hidden growth, of swelling buds". - Karel Capek

More than purely decorative plants, herbs can satisfy the mind, body and soul of anyone, regardless of age, gender, race or social status. They need not be confined to a unique garden area and can be used to indulge purposeful or pleasurable gardening whims. Whether tucked in a pot or planted in a plot, herbs lend a spirit of creativity and give a comfortable sense of connection to the natural world. Their ornamental attributes and aromatic foliage blend artfully with annuals, biennials and perennials to create lovely high performance landscapes.
