Description

Herbs are an important part of an edible garden, and a good place for beginner gardeners to start. They will add flavour to your meals, cups of tea, smoothies, and help all the plants around them as well. Whether you have an existing herb garden, or a blank slate ready to get started, this course will give you fresh ideas on ways to use these special plants throughout your garden, and continue to expand your range as you develop a healing garden. For those needing a quick checklist, there's a download with 30 plants you can just go start collecting, and pop back in here to read up a little about their care and use.

About me, Katrina Wolff

How would you like to be growing the food you most love to eat, saving yourself unnecessary trips out to the shops. Instead, just wander out into your garden and harvest organic produce that is literally still alive. Garden to table means just that - perhaps rinsing off a little of the soil before you head to the kitchen to cook.

The question for so many people is this: 'Where do I start?'

I recommend a quick call to discuss your situation, and I can quite quickly recommend some options, no matter what size your garden. Beginners and advanced gardeners are all welcome.
