Dixie Stephen will teach you all you need to know to grow your own kitchen herb garden! Her presentation will include tips on cultivating herbs for maximum harvesting. Her area of expertise is using herbs in cooking and she will share useful (and delicious) information on pairing specific herbs with foods.

We hope you’ll join us as Dixie Stephen shares this joy with us!
About our presenter, Dixie Stephen:
Raised on a farm in the Traverse City area, Dixie Stephen has been a gardener and grower since she was old enough to pull weeds in her family’s large vegetable garden. Her gardening journey has gone from a “garden” planted in pots on the balcony of her first apartment to the extensive herb, flower and vegetable gardens at Busha’s Brae Herb Farm in Suttons Bay, MI. Stephen is the former founder and owner of Busha’s Brae.
Stephen was part of the revitalization of commercial production of cooking herbs. She was president of the Michigan Herb Business Association and active member of the International Herb Association, both instrumental in the revival of the fresh herb markets in this country.
Stephen has been published in trade journals, written an herbal cookbook and presented numerous programs.
