The purpose of our herb club, Midwest Michigan Herb Association, is to educate members and the public on how to grow and use herbs. We seek to be good stewards of our environment by helping preserve herbs and their habitat for the enjoyment and use of future generations. Cooking suggestions, gardening hints, and craft ideas related to herbs make up our meetings. Every regular meeting includes an herb study and a presentation about herbs and their uses. Our next meeting features a program by Patti Visner showcasing making your own tea, with you making your own sample! Her book about herbal teas will be out soon.

Gwen Hughes presents "Growing herbs in small places: from seed to table." She will show how to combine herbs and edible flowers in pots for compatibility, composition and usage. Herb plants will be available for purchase at $3 each to start your own herbal pot garden. There is no fee to come to the presentation.
Gwen has taught classes at Frederick Meijer Gardens on planting seeds and herbs in pots to harvest later.
