The Herb Garden in the News...

Many thanks go out to the local newspapers over the years for showing their support for the efforts made here at The Herb Garden. Whether it is covering my classes and talks or promoting my annual fall Herbal Open House, the press has been very supportive and I extend my thanks and gratitude.

A special note goes in memory of Marina Blomberg.  A friend and fellow gardener, Marina supported The Herb Garden, every single year, with news clips, calendar events and feature stories as the Garden editor and Neighbors editor of The Gainesville Sun.  She is missed!
