This class will be an introduction to herbs and using them for their culinary, medicinal, and spiritual benefits.

Additional Information

Herbs are easy to grow in containers and gardens, from seed or plants. There are so many uses for herbs: culinary value, medicinal, aromatherapy or spiritual benefits. They can be used fresh, frozen, dried or ground.

Whatever your purpose, you will enjoy their low-maintenance qualities. Most need to be grown in full sun, and pruned when needed.


Availability: Most evenings, weekends (excluding mid-March thru June.) Prefer to travel maximum of 30 minutes one-way from my home in Lee's Summit.

Lu Tarr

Lu Tarr became a Master Gardener in 2010. Her volunteer efforts have included Kansas City’s Flower, Lawn & Garden Show, Garden ‘n Grow, Hotline, Community Gardens, and her personal favorite, Speakers Bureau.

Lu is a lifelong gardening enthusiast; it’s in her blood, as she was raised on a Northern Iowa farm. She loves being outside as much as possible, whether it’s tending to the garden or just enjoying the sunshine with her cat. During the spring, you can find her working at a local garden center, and in the past, working at an apple orchard in the fall. Monday through Friday, she enjoys being “daycare” for her grandson.
