Central Ohio

The Central Ohio Unit of The Herb Society of America


The Central Ohio Unit's mission is to educate the public by example as to the merit, culture, design, and uses for herbs. The passive demonstration gardens are augmented by educational programming and publications.

Our garden is located inside Inniswood Metro Gardens, Westerville, Ohio. The jewel of the garden is our Thyme Collection. Some of our other specialty gardens include trial, culinary, knot, medicinal, Biblical, bee, and fragrance gardens.

The Central Ohio Unit has two main events each year. The plant sale is usually held the first weekend in May and our herb fair, called "Affair of the Hort," is held the last weekend in September.

Our quarterly meetings typically feature a guest speaker while our open board meetings cover business matters. Please contact our chairperson for schedules and details on upcoming meetings.
