Herbs - how to grow & use 

Learn about the three types of herbs- basil, seeded herb crops and perennials. Learn of their history, cultivation, companions and flavors.  Fresh herbs make everyday cooks great chefs!  After the class, we will walk Sunshine Care’s herb garden, then take some samples home.
