Herb Sale History
In the early 1980's, members of the NC Unit decided they needed money to fund a newsletter, support an intern at the National Herb Garden, and provide grants and scholarships in their community.
An herb sale was proposed and enthusiastically endorsed. The first sale was held in the garage of one of the members with plants grown, propagated or divided by members. The sale was a success, with crowds of eager shoppers, and the Herb Sale was born. Since those early days, the sale has moved to the Greek Orthodox church at the corner of W. Friendly Avenue and Westridge Road in Greensboro, NC.
The sale is now the largest herb sale of its type in North Carolina, with thousands of herbs, from the ordinary to the exotic.Growers are on hand to answer questions, and members of the NC Unit are available to assist with plant selections and growing information.
