We aim to make locally grown organic herbs more available for people to taste, cook with, learn from and grow themselves. For 2019 we are offering two options of monthly herb shares – join us for the season and share the herbal harvest each month!
This year the garden will be offering two options for monthly herb shares. The “Gather-Together”share is a chance to join others in the garden each month to harvest in-season herbs, seeds and cuttings for your own use and to share recipes and growing skills. This share runs from May to October, with harvest days on the 3rd Friday & Sunday of the month, from 2pm to 5pm. The cost is a sliding scale from £7.50 to £15/ month.
With the “Harvest-Basket”share members will receive a monthly bag of two dried herb blends and a mixed bunch of fresh herbs for teas and cooking. Blends will vary each month, and include some favorites like Chamomile and Spearmint with a hint of Lavender and Rose, Raspberry leaf and Lemon Balm for teas, and Marjoram and Oregano, and dried Basil for cooking. This share runs from June to November (6 months) and costs £15/ month.
