The UC Davis Good Life Garden will be converting to it's fall and winter produce plantings next week, so before most of our summer herbs are replaced with lettuces, beets, chard, etc. we invite you to come out to the garden to enjoy the LAST HERB HARVEST FOR 2010! The following herbs are currently available: lavender, basil (green and purple), oregano, chive and mint.
The give-away is free to attend; we just need you to bring the following items:
* scissors or pruning shears
* a bag to hold your herbs
* wet paper towels to put in the bag with the herbs (if you don't have a refrigerator to keep them in for the day)
* water to drink (because it's going to be hot!)
BE SURE TO WASH ALL HERBS WELL BEFORE ENJOYING THEIR FRESH TASTE!
Our gardener Pat will be there all day to answer your questions about the different herbs and the harvesting process, as well as to direct you to the correct plants. We ask that no one remove entire plants or remove more than half of the leaves or flowers from any particular plant.
The mission of the UC Davis Good Life Garden at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science is to expose and educate a wide audience to the relationship between good food and good health. The garden landscape, web site, blog, graphics, marketing and promotions are all designed and maintained by staff at the UC Davis division of Campus Planning & Community Resources.
