The proceeds from the Herb Fair support the South Texas Unit's educational activities as well as the donations we make to area arboreta and gardens (ex. Festival Hill Institute, Ginzbarg Nature Discovery Center Sensory/Herb Garden in Bellaire), the Herb Garden at the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. and to the educational outreach programs of The Herb Society of America. The Herb Fair also supports the annual scholarships we award to Texas students studying botany or horticulture.
We appreciate your support.
The heat and humidity are finally giving way to fall and November is the best time to plant an herb garden in Houston. Imagine having fresh and nutritious parsley, rosemary, cilantro, pineapple sage and lemon verbena only steps away on you own balcony or in your back yard.
To help get the herbs from your garden to your table, Herb Society member Donna Fay Hilliard will offer an excellent selection of organic biological fertilizers, inoculants, soil amendments, and honeybee attractants. Donna Fay’s Pearland-based business, Sweet Organic Solutions, specializes in natural, safe, and effective organic garden products. To keep you and your plants free of bugs, she’ll also bring natural insecticides and pesticides as well as beneficial insects. Take some ladybugs home with you. Your plants - and children - will thank you!
