City Gardening 101: Container Herb Gardening

thumbnail-2Always dreamed of growing a green thumb, but don’t know where to start?

Come get your hands dirty and learn introductory techniques to growing kitchen herbs in containers.

Spice up your cooking and medicine cabinet; fresh herbs not only taste amazing, they also make your kitchen smell great, clean your air, and have wonderful medicinal properties.

We’ll provide the containers, plants, paint, soil, and our gardening knowledge.



At our class you will learn the basics of making a container garden, including how to:

  • Paint and prepare¬†your container for planting
  • Find the best herbs are for growing indoors
  • Discover what kind of soil to use
  • Care for your plants and keep ’em thriving

You’ll go home with your own container herb garden that you made yourself with your own hands!
