Gardens Workshop: Herbs for the Desert Gardener

Learn what sets herbs and spices apart and how to grow herbs that flourish in our desert climate. We'll show you how to harvest herbs and use them in many ways—culinary, medicinal, pesticides, aromatics and more.

Our eight acres of botanical gardens are cared for by some of the best in the business, and now they're sharing their secrets and tips with YOU! Learn the joys and rewards of Mojave Desert gardening. We repeat each Saturday workshop on Sunday, so attend on the day that's best for you.
