Class Description

The UC Davis Arboretum grows an abundance of fresh, aromatic herbs. Herbs are some of the few greens in the human diet that provide a density of antioxidants usually only found in wild plants. Learn how to add these nutrients and new flavor dimensions to your cooking with herbs that flourish in Davis.
This cooking class pairs with the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden's class, Herbs and Veggies: Creating Your Edible Garden. Register for that class here.
