Biblical Herb Garden

Check out our Biblical Herb garden and take cuttings for yourself!

Did you know ECC has a biblical herb garden? It is located to the west of the garage. It is a place for prayer and reflection containing a variety of herbs and plants, most of which have a history in the Bible! We have mint, basil, oregano, dill, hyssop, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, lavender, sage, and tarragon. We also have Moses in the Bull Rushes which is not edible.


You are free to take cuttings of these plants for your home garden or contact Carla Weathers and she will be glad to collect some for you. Carla is also available to do a walkthrough of the garden after our August 30 Unity Service. If you are interested in a garden walkthrough or in cuttings, contact Carla Weathers by text here
