It’s always been a dream of mine to own a little garden and eat only what I grow myself. Yesterday I met with many likeminded people, and learned that it’s actually quite possible to take care of my own food.

On Sunday we had Back to Basix’s first class, in which we talked about six plants that are commonly used in everyday life: Basil, Garlic, Ginger, Green Onions, Mint, and Rosemary. We explored their health effects of these herbs, and introduced a simple recipe for each plant.

The eager home gardeners wanted to know all the details about planting their favorite herbs. We discussed proper planting procedures for each herb, as well as little things one needs to pay attention during the process. 

We made mint lemonade and vegetables dipped in pesto for the event. Yummy! They are easy to make, and good for your health too.
