Herb Garden


The Wellness Department sponsors a community herb garden for people at PNC to enjoy. Anyone is welcome to take some fresh herbs and use at home. Currently, there are 22 varieties of herbs in the garden. Fresh herbs make great additions to your cooking providing flavor without the added salt, sugar, or salt.  You can substitute fresh herbs with dried herbs in recipes, too.  The conversion is 1 tablespoon (Tbsp) of fresh herbs to 1 teaspoon (tsp) of dried herbs since dried herbs are usually more concentrated in flavor.

The herb garden is located in the planters located on the east side of Schwarz Hall by the northeast doors. Please take only what you need.
