Texas A&M University-Texarkana and the Bowie County Master Gardeners will present a program titled “All About Herbs” on Monday, May 13 at A&M-Texarkana. The class will be held from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in Room 306 of the Science and Technology Building. The class is free and open to the public and reservations are not required.

According to a press release, the program’s speaker is Nicholas Auck, a Miller County Master Gardener.  He will be sharing how herb gardening is one of the most fulfilling types of gardening but requires significantly less skill than growing exotic flowers. Herb gardening is not only a great place for the beginner gardener to start, but it is also a type of gardening that produces a result that is both fragrant and edible. The discussion will include information about what herbs grow best indoors, what herbs grow well in our region, and what time of year should you plant them.

For more information, call Emily Newsome at Texas A&M at 903.223.3039 or Teresa Slack at (903) 831.7494.
