Greetings Florida Herb Society members and friends,
The 3rd Tuesday of the month is once again upon us, and our speaker will be FHS member and our favorite folk herbalist, Willow LaMonte of Willow Herbal Delight Gardens. She will be sharing with us “Growing Healing Herbs”. Willow is one of our great local herb teachers. If you’ve ever purchased her organic herbs you already know how knowledgeable and generous she is. She will have plants and herb books to sell and has something for everyone.
Thank you so much to our member speaker Cindy Stiles of “The Earth Friendly Nook” sharing Moringa and the Moringa Angels and our speaker from Haynor’s nursery at our last meeting.
Earth day was a wonderful event at Mocassin Lake Nature Park. It was a beautiful day to show case our organization and we had lots of interested attendees stopping by to check us out and ask questions. Thank you to “The Edible Garden” for inviting us and Mocassin Lake Nature Park for hosting this event on their property. Thank you to Sharon Smith our secretary for helping out at our booth and bringing cuttings and dried herbs to share for donation.
The 11th Annual Herb day celebration was wonderful as always. Thank you to Dennis Girouard our Horticulture specialist, for helping out at our booth and sharing info with all the attendees. It was such a beautiful day. Please check out our Facebook page for pictures of these events.Thanks to board member Bob Linde of Acupuncture and Herbal Therapies for inviting and hosting this fundraiser for us. I can never say enough about herb day. If you haven’t yet been to one, I hope you will join us next year!
Please consider bringing a refreshment to share at our culinary table.
Also please consider joining our board as we are in need of a membership/greeter and also of someone to be on culinary. Details of those positions were sent in the last email. We are also occassionally asked for speakers at different local events. If anyone is interested in sharing knowledge on ways they grow or use herbs please let me know so I can connect you. I have personally not been available so it would be great to find someone who is looking for speaking opportunities that would dually representing The Florida Herb Society.
See you Tuesday! Peace & Blessings, Anne and Amy
