Around the world, plants we think of as "culinary herbs" traditionally had a broader range of uses. Community Herbalist Sarah Sorci will briefly discuss the growing preferences and uses of common herbs like thyme, lavender, rosemary, lemon balm, sage and more. She will share recipes and samples of herb-infused vinegar, infused honey and more.
