Think ‘Out-of-the-Bag’…Enjoy fresh basil, chives, thyme or cilantro without another trip to the grocery store. Pick up Garden in a Bag available at Changemaker in the Niederdorf area. To give ‘em a grow’, simply mix the seed packet with the soil, water and in 5-8 weeks your fresh herb leaves are ready for mincing and consumption in your favorite foods. Keep a modern twist to your newly found green thumb and keep your herbs in the bag, or re-plant as you wish!
