The New Co-Op Communal Herb Garden

Member Sue Smollen obtained a grant to create a communal herb garden. There are now herb gardens planted on both rooftops of A Building and B Building.


The herbs currently planted are:

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Parsley
  • Chives
  • Dill
  • Basil
  • Thai Basil
  • French Tarragon
  • Oregano
  • Sage

These herb gardens are for all members to use and enjoy.

Here are a few guidelines and tips for getting the most enjoyment out of the herb gardens, and making sure there are lots left for others to enjoy, as well.

  • Please don’t harvest the herbs right away. Let’s give them some time to grow and take hold and get strong.
  • Please take only what you need.
  • Don’t cut off any main stems, take primarily from the fullest part of the plant, and cut the tips. This will allow the plant to regrow more fully.

Here are some articles about harvesting herbs, and I will post more articles sharing recipes you can make with herbs in the future.
