The Herb Garden next to Legler Barn was constructed in 1994. It is cared for by the Herb Garden at Legler Barn Volunteers. This group meets during the week to weed, plant and water the garden. Our main volunteers are Lori Saving and Pat White.
On September 7, 2009, Boy Scout Troop #186 repaired and renewed the Herb Garden as Dylan Crow’s Eagle Scout project. The troop spent over 248 hours planning and repairing the garden.
They pulled weeds and cleaned dirt away from the brick path, made concrete slabs to prevent benches from sinking into the ground, constructed a new trellis/pergola to replace the rotting trellis and replaced splintering wooden benches with concrete benches.
Thanks to the efforts of this scout troop and our volunteer gardeners, the Herb Garden is an inviting place to visit. Please help us preserve the garden by not picking the flowers or walking on the plants.
