Herb Society plans classes

The Baton Rouge unit of the Herb Society of America is planning two classes this month on making garden pots and garden décor out of hypertufa, which is a mixture of cement, vermiculite and peat moss.

A similar class in January filled up in less than a week, according to a news release. This month's classes will be from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 24 and March 31 at the Pavilion in the LSU AgCenter Botanical Gardens at Burden, 4560 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge.

Hypertufa is sturdy and strong and less than half the weight of stone or cement. It can be fashioned into many forms, from simple little flowerpots to sculptures and fountains.

Advance registration and payment at is required. The cost is $10 for Herb Society members and $15 for others. Every participant will make a garden container to take home and get the recipe for making hypertufa.

Wear old clothes for this messy but fun class, bring a plastic dishpan to be a mold for your first creation, and bring waterproof dishwashing gloves to protect your hands.

For information, call Mary Williams at (414) 526-3016.
