Herbs have played and always will play a vital role in man’s existence. Herbs have been used in many aspects of everyday living from preservation, to homespun remedies, to fabric dyes. In the lecture portion of this series, Joe Alvarez will discuss the history, practical use, and gardening of herbs. In the workshop portion of this series, Alvarez will help decide which herbs would be best for your home and guide you through the planting process so that, by the end of the workshop, you will be able to bring home an herb container garden. 

Joseph Alvarez has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and a minor in Environmental Science, is a founding member of the Cape May County Beach Plum Association, a member of the state Beekeepers Association and is active in many county and agricultural programs in South Jersey.
