We meet  once a month on the 2nd Saturday starting at 10 a.m.   Meetings may last until 12 noon or may be shorter.  Free Food!  Members bring delicious herbal snacks to share. 

Members receive an herb plant each month, free with their $20/year dues,  The monthly meeting includes a presentation on the plant that we receive.  Meetings are fun, please come join us!

We study a different herb each month.  The presentation includes how to grow the herb (sun, moisture, soil, etc.), and if applicable how to cook with that herb.  We offer one free meeting to one and all and hope that you might return and join us.
