Monastery, garden and wild herbal heritage

In the mysterious Gračnica valley, the Jurklošter Carhusian monastery monks have used herbs for improving flavour, health and wellbeing since the 12th century. Their knowledge and wisdom is being kept alive by locals that know how to forage green meadows for wild herbs. The signature smells, flavours and health benefits of herbs in the Laško are can be combined with herbal allotment experiences. What herb does #myLaško smell of?
