Herb Garden

Community Herb Garden for Cuttings

We grow upwards to 25 varieties of herbs. All registered plot holders are invited to take cuttings for preparing their meals. The Herb Garden helps reduce the need to plant herbs in individual plots.


Meet Our Herb Garden Manager

The Herb Garden was originally designed by a young biologist, Aaron Baldridge, in 2013. Today the plot is managed by Gayle Barton, a gardener since 2016. Gayle is enthusiastic about growing herbs for cooking. She and her team keep several varieties of herbs planted in family groups: such as sage, basil, thyme, parsley, oregano and mint for easier identification and comparison.
