Join us to discover how you can make a tangible impact on your community's future through the simple, yet powerful practice of herb gardening.  During the webinar we’ll explore ways to engage youth in community herb gardens, strategies for outreach and engagement, and how the next generation can lead impactful community projects through growing herbs. Youth motivated by the fragrances and flavors of the herbs are inspired to create, tap into their entrepreneurial spirit and manage their own health and wellness in new ways.  You’ll leave the webinar empowered with the knowledge and skills to transform your community through the art of cultivating herbs.
