Herb Garden

In collaboration with the City of San Carlos, Master Gardeners created a pocket herb garden outside the children’s wing of the San Carlos Public Library behind City Hall.

This herb garden is a venue where we teach adults and children how to grow and care for a variety of herbs. The goal is to explore herbs by using touch, smell and taste. 

The herb garden is divided into several sections: Mediterranean, Native, Latin, Mint, and Eastern.

Another feature of the garden is edible flowers, which are grown year-round, including Lavenders, Borage, Nasturtiums, Calendulas, and Violas. These edible flowers reseed each season and create a beautiful show in the spring.
