Troy and I have decided to return to school and get our Master Gardener Certification. It just made sense to us since we have a herb business.
We both love to grow herbs, veggies and flowers so, going back to school to acquire new skills and knowledge is exciting to us.
A big part of getting the M.G. certification involves volunteering with the community and educating others.

We do presentations at different venues.
Growing Basil at the local high school greenhouse (hydroponically)
We are a volunteer business partner with a local high school agriculture program. Troy has been working extensively with the kids regarding herbs and composting.
End of the year tea herb harvest.
In the Spring I will be working with the kids in creating tea gardens and how to create blends.
We love working with the public and educating as much as we can. We have a small herb garden in the Princess’s preschool class. Kids are so eager to learn. So, working with children is one of our favorite volunteer projects.
So gaining more knowledge and being able to share that is something we are really looking forward to!
