Susan Betz teaches, lectures and writes about growing & using herbs for pleasure and purpose. 

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.

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.
