What we’re about

The Herb Society of Victoria has been going since 1980. It is a fun and non competitive group with passionate members who love sharing their vast knowledge, and of course, always keen to learn even more. We have monthly meeting events (not January) on the first Thursday of the month, with guest speakers on herbs and a range of related topics.  We often have herbs for sale or free cuttings to take home at meetings and end the event with herbal teas and supper so plenty of chance to experience some herbie delights, chat and mingle. There are also other events, like garden visits, lunches, bus trips, and seminars.
