Herb Garden Day

The local unit of the Herb Society of America plans its next Herb Garden Day, complete with tours of the John Jay Homestead Herb Garden, on Saturday, August 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Herb Garden Days include a Unit table at the Homestead’s Farm Market and tours of the Homestead’s Herb Garden, as well as related children’s activities. Visitors to the farm market enjoy delicious herbal cookies and muffins, recipes, fact sheets about herbs that the Unit features each month, and information about the N.Y. Unit. 

On August 17, the Unit is celebrating basil and also the lemon herbs scheduled for July since that day was cancelled due to extremely hot weather. At this session, two Unit members are planning fun activities for children—making lemon landscape collages using lemon herbs as trees, and planting basil seedlings. For more information, email herbsocietyny@gmail.com.

People ask me all the time: “How did you get into journalism?”
