Perfect for adding flavor to foods and beverages, herbs are easy to grow with a little sunshine and a little knowledge.

Led by the team at Fleet Farming, a non-profit program of IDEAS For Us, Florida growers can learn about the planning and planting of herbs.

This program is presented by Caroline Chomanics, Fleet Farming manager, and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
