Botanic Gardens – Herb Garden

I recently began volunteering at a local community herb garden, which is part of a larger botanic gardens that focuses on native ecosystems but includes a permaculture garden and an herb garden. I am really enjoying my time there, and learning a lot from a lovely group of people.


The herb garden at its conception, almost 40 years ago


The herb garden in 2014


This rosemary bush is around 20 to 30 years old




I took these photos on an overcast day, but will take some more and add them here in the near future.


The garden has around 500 species of herbs, with uses ranging from culinary and medicinal to fibre making and fibre dyeing.


More to come….
