Parents and Youth Learn How to Grow Basil at Home

On April 10th, René and Alison (Turf CSA members), led an indoor herb garden workshop for parents and youth in our community at Parkchester Public Library. Participants learned how to recycle plastic soda bottles by turning them into miniature greenhouses that will germinate basil seeds in the upcoming month. This workshop will be followed by an indoor herb potting workshop in May in which parents and youth will transplant the basil plants they have been growing at home into window garden pots. These indoor herb garden workshops are part of a larger Herb Garden Project between Turf and Parkchester Public Library that is design not only to help parents and youth learn how to grow indoor herbs, but also to encourage them to make nutritional meals with fresh herbs grown at home.
