Fresh culinary herbs can be hard to find in stores, cost a mint, and don’t keep long in the fridge. Dried ones might sit on shelves, losing flavor for years before they’re even bought. Try growing your own to save money and get a more potent product. Herb farmer Jeff Higley will offer you sage advice, basil basics, and more.

Presenters: Jeff Higley is an herbalist and farmer. In 2013, he and his wife, Elise, blended their experience and dreams to create Oshala Farm, their 145-acre herb farm in Applegate Valley, Oregon. The farm has more than 80 herbs in cultivation, is certified organic, and employs regenerative, sustainable cultivation practices.

About Growing Oregon Gardeners: Level Up Series

The cost of food keeps climbing. One in five people faces hunger in Oregon. And the pandemic showed us the fragility of our supply system. Growing our own food—for us, for our families, for our neighbors—is an action gardeners can take to strengthen food security in our local communities. This year's Growing Oregon Gardeners: Level Up series is aimed at helping gardeners take a bite out of hunger. The closed-captioned webinars will be broadcast via Zoom and streamed via our Facebook page on the second Tuesday of the month, at noon, February through October 2024. This series is open to the public, and OSU Extension Master Gardener volunteers receive 1 Continuing Education Credit for each class. You can take one, or take all. This webinar is being recorded and will be available to view on our website within two weeks of airdate.
