Have you ever wanted to know how to preserve and cook with your own home-grown herbs? Have you had questions about where to plant, how much sun, how much water, and fertilizer for your herbs to make them thrive? Join Holly VanHeel, ISU Extension & Outreach Human Sciences Program Specialist and a local Master Gardener, on Thursday, July 16th, for an evening of recipes, snacks and great information!
