Herb Gardening in Sublette County
Thursday, April 27th
6:30 pm
The Lovatt Room

Plants that are considered “herbs” are some of the most nutritious foods on the planet and
besides being super nutritious, herbs add interest and flavor to foods. In this workshop, Sublette County Master Gardener Arlinda McLaughlin will share information on how to grow annual and perennial herbs, ranging from the easiest to grow (parsley, mint, and chives) to the fussy ones (basil). Participants will learn which herbs are well-loved by our regional wildlife and which are deer and rabbit resistant. Information on the culinary uses of herbs will be shared, as well as recipes for preserving herbs.
