The May 1st meeting will start at 7 pm at
Parkland College Tony Noel Building (W in the map). The program will be Pots to Cook By by Karen Lowery, as well as a plant exchange. Simon Rosenzweig will present Herb of the Month.
The Champaign-Urbana Herb Society was organized in October 1975 to study and encourage interest in herbs – their history, cultivation, and use. The society maintains two gardens in Urbana: Meadowbrook Herb Garden and Urbana Free Library. In May, we hold a popular giant plant sale. We are affiliated with the Urbana Park District. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month where we enjoy a monthly program.
The Herb Society is open to anyone interested in finding out more about herbs, herbal lore, culinary and medicinal uses of herbs. Dues are $15 a year. Most members discover rather quickly that they get their dues back in plants from other members who often bring extra plants, cuttings, or divisions of perennials to the meetings. Members also receive our Newsletter (Sprigs) and can attend workshops and tours.
The CU Herb Society does not endorse any claims regarding medicinal or nutritional uses of herbs.
