The Herb Garden was designed and installed by the MGC in 1979 as a formal garden to complement and enhance the historic Durand-Hedden House. This award-winning garden contains one of the largest collections of herb species on the east coast. The garden is often used to demonstrate the propagation and cultivation of herbs and their use for culinary, medicinal, fragrance, ornamental, and craft purposes. A group of members continues to meet to maintain and further develop the garden.
The summer of 2017 was wonderful at the Durand-Hedden Herb Garden. What a treat it had been to be surrounded by the relaxing garden full of herbs and so pleasing to see the Monarchs and bees enjoying the garden and benefitting from it as well.
Please be in touch with Carrie Gordon and I as we plan for next years garden, we always welcome your input, and feel free to stop by and clip some herbs for your culinary uses before the cold. – Nancy Cook
