Learn how to get started growing medicinal herbs in the home garden at the Alan Chadwick Garden at UC Santa Cruz on Saturday, March 7 from 9:30am to 11:30am. Workshop instructor Cameron Salomon will cover the basics of starting, growing, harvesting, and using medicinal herbs that thrive in our coastal climate.
