Valentine’s head chef, Jeremy Roush, worked with others to plant an herb garden outside the dining hall last fall. During the growing season, he and his staff use a variety of the herbs in meals they create. Here are some of the herbs that grow in the garden and examples of Valentine specialties that make use of each.
