Help us us spread the appreciation and knowledge of herbs even farther by donating to our Year-end Appeal. Membership dues are vitally important but provide only part of HSA’s operating support. The Annual Fund is the fertile soil that nourishes all operations, programs, and projects.
Our organization, at its heart, is all about sharing our passion for herbs. We have worked tirelessly for eighty-five years to promote and inspire the use of herbs in our gardens and our lives. Your support is vital in continuing this important mission. Your gifts support education through public gardens, online programs, and grants for school gardens and scientific research. Last year we awarded more than $12,000 to help create learning gardens in schools and support scientific research. Through your donations, The Herb Society of America is preserving our legacy of expanding and sharing knowledge of these wonderful plants and their impact on our lives, our culture, and our environment.
