Hello Herbies!

Welcome to a new herb-tastic year of learning and activities. We have an exciting line-up of programs scheduled beginning on our first meeting this month with our own Nan Booth Simpson who will educate us on the best herbs for Hill Country Gardens. Also, we’re hitting the ground running in preparations for Herb Celebration Day, October 17. Over the summer groups have gotten together to work on jams and jellies, hypertufas, and cards and there are workshops scheduled throughout September to make vinegars, scrubs and sprays, mustards, meat rubs, and wreaths, and to paint gourds. At our meeting this month, we’ll discuss plans for Herb Celebration Day and the preparations needed going forward.

We eagerly anticipate seeing everyone on September 17, same time, same place. Please bring your checkbook to pay dues! If you’re unable to attend the meeting, you may send your $65 check made out to Hill Country Unit of HSA by September 24 to:
Sara Holland

Additionally, the South Central District Gathering will in Fredericksburg on September 19 – 20.  The following link will provide more information on activities and registration:
