An Invitation to Join the Memphis Herb Society!

  • We welcome all new members, with or without a knowledge of herbs and gardening, who are interested in learning about the cultivation and use of herbs.
  • We meet with and enjoy fellowship and friendships with diverse members of the community, all who are united by their interest in herbs.
  • We gain further knowledge from regional, special guest speakers at many of our monthly meetings.
  • We offer specific hands-on workshops throughout the year to increase our knowledge and take home a product,
  • We support our community by volunteering in the Memphis Botanic Garden, thereby also learning about best cultivation practices and cultivars. It is through volunteers that the Herb Garden at the MBG is able to thrive.
  • We sponsor the Herban Renewal Grant, inviting the non-profit community to submit their educational projects which will benefit the wider community.
  • We support other volunteer opportunities through local garden organizations and the Memphis Botanic Garden throughout the year.
  • We have a social hour before the monthly meeting where members bring herbal creations from their kitchens to be shared by all. Often recipes are circulated and further enjoyed.
  • We send out a monthly informative and educational newsletter. There is also a Facebook page.
  • We conclude our year with a special November Winter Solstices Celebration of fellowship and friendship and welcome you to bring a friend and a fun culinary dish.
