Windowsill herb garden event series

Earlier this summer The Disability Network held a two part windowsill herb garden event series. In the first part, participants painted terracotta pots together and discussed which herbs they were interested in growing. The second part was a couple weeks later after the pots were dry. They planted their herbs, talked about windowsill herb garden management, and chatted about what recipes they were excited to use our herbs in. All of the participants got to take their plants home with them.
