Spearmint at the Schaumburg Campus Herb Garden

Thanks to the plentiful rain that we’ve been receiving here in Schaumburg, and all around the Chicagoland area, many plants are thriving!  This includes our beautiful stock at the Herb Garden at Roosevelt University’s Schaumburg campus.   We invite you to help yourselves.  Take a snip of some fresh chives to add to a crunchy salad.  Enjoy some fresh basil on a sandwich!  Take a pinch of spearmint for a relaxing mojito (make it virgin if you are under 21!).  Use oregano for a fantastic sauce!

We also have fresh lavender, thyme and more!  Stop by today and cook up something exciting for dinner.  What could be better than chemical free, locally grown, fresh herbs in your meal?

For more information, contact Sarah Tag, Environmental Sustainability Student Associate (sfisher@roosevelt.edu).
