Turn your lawn into a source of wellness for you and habitat for your pollinator friends.

During this class, you will take home all the knowledge, publications, seeds and inspiring ideas needed to successfully and enjoyably grow a variety of herbs in your lawn. We’ll discuss herbs that are tolerant of mowing and trampling along with how and when to seed them into your turf. Harvesting and using the herbs will also be discussed.
