Herb Garden

A collection of woody, annual, and perennial plants grouped by use: aromatic, culinary, medicinal, and plants for dye. Throughout history, people have relied on herbs for cooking, healing, and fragrance, and have used them in sacred cultural ceremonies and traditions.  Renovations increased the total size of the Herb Garden by 50% to include herbs significant in Asian culture, herbs used by Native Americans, and a new lavender collection.
