We live in the perfect climate for growing herbs and greens for use in the kitchen. In this class you’ll discover how to grow, harvest, preserve, and use herbs and plants that add flavor and nutrition to your cooking! We will discuss spring plantings - including basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, mint, stevia - and greens you can plant now to have available fresh during the fall and winter months - sorrel, mustard, kale, and arugula. This class will cover optimal planting conditions and provide information on how to harvest, preserve, and use these plants in the kitchen beyond pesto and smoothies.

Presenter: Shannon Quattlebaum is a master gardener and co-owner of Green Heart Awakening, a natural health and wellness store and classroom space in Pendleton, SC. She made the switch to a plant-based, whole food diet over 15 years ago and she enjoys sharing her knowledge of growing food and herbs for cooking and teas.
