The St. Charles Public Library will present "Herbs for the Garden and Kitchen" at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 22, in the library's Carnegie Community Room, 1 S. Sixth Ave.
Ruth Ann Seney, a University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener, will present examples and instruction on how to grow and preserve a variety of herbs. Suggestions and recipes for using herbs in cooking will be provided.
The program will introduce new flavors into your diet, new fragrances into your home and adding texture to your garden.
Growing herbs is one of the most rewarding and easiest forms of gardening. Herbs are easy to grow; they rarely require much more than average to poor soil, and seem to thrive on neglect. Many are drought resistant. They provide pleasure to the taste bud and to the nose.
The public is welcome and the program is free to attend.
The presentation is sponsored by the Friends of St. Charles Public Library.
