The herbs in the Culinary Garden and the mints that are grown for tea in Penelope’s Garden are identified by stakes with red ties when they are available to harvest. Please do not harvest any herbs unless you see a red tie on the row. Following this rule is essential to ensure enough herbs are available for the community. In Penelope’s Garden, the herbs that are not available for harvest are not grown in large enough quantities; these must be preserved for educational and display purposes.

For instructions on how to harvest, please note the blackboard in the Culinary Garden, and guidelines on our website. Thank you for your help with keeping our herb gardens thriving!
