Thanks to all who came to see us at our annual Autumn Herb Gathering on October 10 at Rolling Ridge Nursery.
We enjoyed herbal speakers, herbal tastings, herbal demonstrations, purchased unique herbal gifts, tasty herbal treats, and herbal books.
Diane Alt of Old Mountain Soap talked about natural herbal combinations for soaps, sprays, and lotion bars that are kind to the body and the planet.
Laurie Metz of Shapfield Farms Soap Suds talked about herb infused honey and growing and using loofahs.
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.
