The Bountiful Herb Garden: Harvesting and Preserving Your Herbs

The Bountiful Herb Garden: Harvesting and Preserving Your Herbs


Join Caren White, The Herb Lady, for an informative talk on harvesting and preserving the herbs that you grow in your garden. Timing and technique are the keys to maximizing the harvest from your herb garden for future use.

 In the first half of the talk, you will learn the best time of the day and the best time of year to harvest each type of herb.  Then you will learn the correct way to harvest leaves, flowers, seeds and roots to maximize the yield from your plants.

In the second half of the class, you will learn multiple ways to freeze or dry your herbs and which technique works best for which herb.  

Caren will also talk about how to make herbal oils, vinegars, salts, sugars and butters which can also be used to preserve herbs for future use.

This program is free and open to all; no registration is required.

It is made possible with the support of The Friends of the Livingston Public Library.

Participants will be expected to follow all current CDC guidelines.
