Learn how to re-purpose all kinds of unique containers and make them into table-top herb gardens! These scrumptious little container gardens may then be transplanted outside when warm weather arrives! A few lucky attendees will go home with a little garden of their own. All will go home with instructions and perhaps a kit.

“I get to spend each day feeding my true passion,” Margaux said. “Whether I’m on my hands and knees in the garden planting seeds or turning those seeds, when mature, into a tasty meal for my family, I love it. I am focused on creating a healthy heaven-on-earth-Home for my family. What’s not to like about that?”
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Margaux has over a decade of design experience. Her philanthropy, The Giving Gardens, allows her to play in gardens all over Michigan, but she also loves to grow her own fruit, vegetables and herbs at home in her family’s organic kitchen garden. Her home, garden and recipes are featured regularly in newspapers, magazines, radio and on television. Her daughter, at age 10, became one of the youngest certified raw food chefs in the country.
