My sister-in-law bought a cookbook at the Airing of the Quilts in Huntsville, Texas. It was put out by the Texas Thyme Unit of the Herb Society of America. As I thumbed through it, I noticed the TTU met on the fourth Wednesday of every month at the Wynne Home in Huntsville. I was finally in town and made it for the meeting this past month and was delighted to meet a terrific group of women who are dedicated to herbs—and more. Most of them are Master Gardeners!
The Herb Society of America (HSA) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that focuses on educating its members and the public on the cultivation of herbs and the study of their history and uses, both past and present.
The HSA is subdivided into districts and units. I happened to hook up with the Texas Thyme Unit just as the District Gathering is about to be held right here in Huntsville. Very exciting!
Membership is open to anyone interested in herbs or any business concerned with growing, processing or selling herbs and herb-related products. Individuals may join as a member at large or may choose to become active in a local unit. If you are interested, go to this link to get more information or find a Unit near you.
Until next time,
