Join us at our annual Autumn Herb Gathering on October 10, 2015, from 9 am until 2 pm at Rolling Ridge Nursery on 60 North Gore Avenue in Webster Groves, MO.
Enjoy herbal speakers, herbal tastings, herbal demonstrations, purchase unique herbal gifts, tasty herbal treats, and herbal books.
10:30 – Diane Alt of Old Mountain Soap will talk about natural herbal combinations for soaps, sprays, and lotion bars that are kind to the body and the planet.
11:30 – Laurie Metz of Shapfield Farms Soap Suds will talk about herb infused honey and growing and using loofahs.
We are going Ecoherbal. That means you can either get recipes and instructions from our web site or photograph them at the AHG with your phone. Either way is paperless and helps our environment.
The atmosphere will be warm and cozy inside the nursery with delicious lovingly baked breads, cookies, and more. Lavender, basil, and rosemary are just a few of the herbs flavoring these treats.
WGHS provides student scholarships in herb-related studies, makes donations to community projects, donates plants and member hands-on help in maintaining the herb gardens at Hawken House in Webster Groves, Mudd’s Grove in Kirkwood, and the History Village Herb Garden at Faust Park in Chesterfield. These gardens are open to the public and showcase the herbs that grow so well in this region.
