Somerville Garden Club

May 8, 2024 Virtual Meeting – Herbs!

NOTE: This meeting will be held online ONLY

Herb Gardening

Herb gardening has been popular for centuries but herbs were not grown solely for culinary use, as we think of them primarily today.  Herb gardens took care of the family by providing herbs for medicine, herbs for dying cloths, herbs to keep the clothes and house fresh, and many other uses. We will explore the world of herbs and take a look at a modern-day herb garden.

A gardener for more than 40 years, Barb McIntosh has been a Massachusetts Master Gardener since 2016. She is a former volunteer Head Steward in the Trial Garden at Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Gardens at Elm Bank. She is also a principal contributor in the Northeast Correctional Center (NECC)  Concord Massachusetts Horticultural program where inmates are trained on vegetable gardening and landscaping techniques with the hope that they will be able to secure a job upon release. Barb is presently bringing the horticulture program to Pondville prison. Barb also is the co-project manager for the Carlisle Center Park site, providing outreach as well as gardening programs. Barb participates in a variety of other MMGA activities, including mentoring master gardener students, training, and the MMGA newsletter.
