The North Carolina Unit of The Herb Society of America, Inc. was organized in 1982 to further the knowledge and use of herbs and to share this interest and expertise with the greater community.

 

Our members range in age, knowledge and expertise from those beginning the study of herbs to those who have years of experience. Our interests are broad, including horticulture, photography, literature, arts, crafts, cooking, and research as it relates to herbs.  The organization welcomes both men and women.

 

Though most of our meetings are held in Greensboro, members live from the coast to the mountains of North Carolina and beyond.

 

 

Membership in the Herb Society of America, Inc. and in the North Carolina Unit is open to all who share an interest in herbs and are willing to share in the work of the organization. We hold our membership meetings on the third Thursday of the month for programs on a variety of herb-related topics and we have other events at other times during each month.

2016 SPECIAL EVENT


May  19, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.– Annual Meeting

Place:  Greensboro Country Club, 410 Sunset Drive

Program:  Andrea Wulf—The Invention of Nature:  Alexander von Humboldt’s New World

Once again we welcome Andrea Wulf to discuss her latest book.  What made Humboldt so famous was that he had come up with the revolutionary idea that the natural world was a web of life—a unified whole where everything was correlated.  He predicted human-induced clime change as early as 1800.  He wone together hard scientific data with art, history, poetry, and politics.  Humboldt saw nature as a global force and become one of the most interdisciplinary of all scientists.

· Unit Business & Annual Meeting:  Mary Jo Wilson, Chair


Guests are welcome.  Contact Us for registration information.
