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.
Even through COVID in 2020-2021, the Garden Club still found the way to maintain and preserve this beautiful garden. Anne Simms is the Durand-Hedden Garden chair. She’s always looking for some help. Working the garden is a tranquil and rewarding experience. Contact Anne if you’d like to get involved (DurandHeddenGarden@
