The Wisconsin Unit of The Herb Society of America
Formed in 1976, the Wisconsin Unit is proud to provide grants to the community for garden projects, multi-art experiences involving herbs and flowers and to provide a horticultural scholarship to a student attending a local university. The Wisconsin Unit supports public herb gardens at Boerner Botanical Gardens (Hales Corner, Wisconsin), Old World Wisconsin (Eagle, Wisconsin) and at Pioneer Village (Saukville, Wisconsin).
Membership meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month (September-November and January-May) and include a herbal lunch provided by members. All those with an interest in herbs are invited to attend. Recent unit program topics include native prairie plants as herbs, the art of container gardening and growing plants from seed. The unit has also provided public talks and demonstrations at Boerner Botanical Gardens, Weneyburg Library, Prairie Stone Garden Center, and the West Allis Farmers Market.
