University of Southern Maine Professor Mark Silber will present a talk at USM’s Lewiston-Auburn College entitled “Herbs! How to grow them and what to do with them.” The talk takes place on Thursday, June 2, from 2 pm – 3 pm in USM LAC’s room 285 and is free and open to the public.
Professor Silber is a master gardener and owner of Hedghog Hill Farm in Sumner. In 2005 his farm was selected as one of only six farms in New England as Yankee Magazine’s Editor’s Choice for farms to visit. He is the co-author of several books including “A Small Farm in Maine” and “Growing Herbs and Vegetables from Seed to Harvest.” Silber’s talk will discuss planting and cultivation methods of herbs and the different various ways to use these herbs in everyday life.
