  • Selecting the right container
  • Choosing the correct soil
  • Adding the best fertilizer
  • Picking the most suitable types of plants or seeds
  • Watering the best way: how, when, and how much
  • Easy and effective maintenance
  • Harvesting Do’s and Don’ts

“Best of all, every attendee will take home a small container full of herbs that they have planted during the class,” reports Louise Blasius, LMSW, LPC, Director of Human Services at McKenzie Health System, and Healthy Lifestyle Committee Chairperson. “Please join us for a class that promises to be both informative and fun, featuring one of our most popular workshop speakers. We hope to see you there!”
