What better way to add zest to meals than with herbs that you grow right at home? Learn how to raise, harvest and store them when Ocean County Master Gardener Cheryl Clearo presents “Thyme to Learn about Herbs” at the Ocean County Library Stafford Branch, 10:30 AM Monday, May 13.

Cheryl will describe methods for growing herbs indoors and outdoors, in the ground and in containers, and offer tips about drying, preserving, and freezing them for future use.

The Master Gardeners of Ocean County are trained, certified volunteers who assist the Rutgers Cooperative Extension staff in providing research-based information on sustainable horticulture to county residents.

Cheryl, in her sixth year as Master Gardener, volunteers in the Community Garden at Ocean County Park where food is grown and donated to nearby food pantries. She also co-chairs the Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s Homegrown Garden initiative, teaching vegetable gardening techniques to new interns in the Master Gardener program.
