AgCenter herb garden groundbreaking set Aug. 28

BATON ROUGE — The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden will break ground at 7 p.m. Aug. 28 on the first phase of construction of the new teaching and demonstration herb garden.
The garden will focus on medicinally useful plants that are indigenous to our region as well as those brought by early settlers, said Jeff Kuehny, resident director at AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden.
Created and sponsored by The Herb Society of America Baton Rouge Unit, the garden will provide educational opportunities for those who wish to develop a better understanding of herbal plants and how they can enrich our mind, body and spirit, Kuehny said.
The herb garden will comprise four separate sections, each with a theme that reflects the various influences of the state’s inhabitants. They will include a Louisiana kitchen garden, heritage garden featuring Louisiana cultures, a natural garden and an education area.
More information is available from Kuehny at 225-763-3990 or online at
