Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library will present “Growing & Using Herbs,” on Monday, April 17, beginning at 6:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.
Fort Bend County Master Gardener Tricia Bradbury will provide an overview and general information on growing herbs on the Texas Gulf Coast. Learn how to preserve herbs for later use by drying or freezing them, or by using them to flavor oil and vinegar. Bradbury will also share tips on cooking with fresh and dried herbs.
A retired pharmacist, Bradbury has been a long-time member of the Sugar Land Garden Club and the Houston Federation of Garden Clubs. She is also a member of the Coastal Prairie Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists, the Houston chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas, and Keep Sugar Land Beautiful. Her backyard is certified as a Texas Parks & Wildlife Wildscape, a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat, and a Monarch Watch Waystation Site. Her garden has been featured several times on the Sugar Land Garden Club’s spring garden tour and on the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners’ fall garden tour.
