Hamilton County Master Gardeners come meet your fellow committee members and learn what’s happening in the garden this summer. After the brief meeting we will be going over to tour the garden. Feel free to stop by if you didn’t make it to the committee fair or just didn’t get over to our booth. You can still sign up for the Heirloom Garden.
While many different herbs are available in almost every food market, many gardeners delight in the culture of herbs and growing their own. Some of us grow only a few kinds perhaps, because we don’t know how to use them.
Program speaker for the March 17 general meeting will be HCMGA member Linda Riski-Lindorff who will give us an overview on growing herbs, with an emphasis on new varieties of old favorites as well as introduce some that are lesser known. She will discuss ways to preserve your harvest, and since she loves experimenting with herbs in cooking, she will offer tips on what to pair with foods.
As a city girl who grew up on a small lot in Chicago, Linda did not attempt serious gardening until 2007 when she became a member of HCMGA. She has served as a co-President of HCMGA, chairperson of the Picket Fence Herb bed, and worked on several committees (i.e., AAS Veggie Bed, Greens Workshop and the Plant Sale). She is a registered pharmacist, holds a BS in Pharmacy from Creighton University, and is a member of the Herb Society of Central Indiana and the Herb Society of America.
