What should I know to get started in growing herbs organically?

I am interested in growing herbs organically, probably indoors.
What do I need? Where do I get it? Resources? Ideas? TIps?
Thanks!

Pots, potting soil, small herb plants, water, organic fertilizer (but herbs generally don't need much fertilizer), enough light, book on growing herbs
Where do I get it?
Local plant nursery, or local Home Depot or Lowes or similar.
Resources? Ideas? TIps?
Just do it! :-)

most herbs are just useful weeds they are hardy and tolerant to dry and lots of sun. i i have mounds of mint baisel sage ect. they grow well and i do nothing to them but they are out side and i mulch i have brought in and cultivated some fror neighbors to have and they grow well even if i forget about them for a few days have a go at it it's fun and easy i also grow them inside in a strawberry pot (one with holes all in theside of a vase like pot they do well in that and it is an attractive house plant to boot i put rosemary or baisel in the top and just fill in the sides with parsley and what ever else floats my boat i also like dill and chives which do well too. have fun happy cooking michelle

I'd have to agree. Like with most anything else you learn as you go along. When I started my first garden I just planted away! I learned a few things since then (-;
By the way one of my favorite herbs to grow is catnip - I like to see if my cat catches on and actually knows its growing.

Absent Japanese beetles, many herbs are natural insect repellents, and less bothered than other crops. Most aren't "heavy feeders", so after planting in suitable soil, over- rather than under-fertilizing is a more likely problem. Nearly all herbs thrive with lots of sun.
Oh, if you have Swallowtail butterflies, watch your dill and parsley. Swallowtail 'pillars *love* those.

Lots of sun. You can buy plants or seed packets. Most herbs need very little fertilizer, but needs vary from plant to plant. I've had limited success growing herbs indoors, but when planted outdoors in full sun (with neglect) they seem to grow like weeds. My sage is now in full bloom, almost quadrupled in size since early spring.
