Herbs Free for the Picking

The UUCBG Herb Garden is located next to the doors of the Fellowship Hall. The plants are labeled, and everyone is welcome to harvest some herbs for cooking or drying.

In 2015, our herb garden contained:

  • lemon thyme
  • purple sage
  • golden sage
  • purple basil
  • oregano
  • marjoram
  • feverfew
  • chives
  • garlic chives
  • lavender
  • tarragon
  • artemisia
  • marigold

In the fall of 2015, a coral honeysuckle vine (Lonicera sempervirens) was planted at the base of the wall, and a trellis was added for the vine to climb. Come summer, it will bloom with bright red flowers, providing nectar for hummingbirds and butterflies. Its leaves are the host food for Spring Azure Butterfly and the Hummingbird Moth. We’re hoping all these creatures will enjoy the buffet!
