The Pennsylvania Heartland Herb Unit of the Herb Society of America was initially formed from the Herb Haus study group in 1982 and applied for unit status with The Herb Society of America, Inc. on January 2, 1985, for the purpose of seriously studying and actively sharing the history, horticulture and uses of herbs.
Our Unit strives to achieve it's stated mission by organizing several annual events that have been a common thread throughout the history of our unit; our Symposia, our scholarship program, our yearly tours, and our Unit-sponsored gardens.
The "Herbal Delights" Symposium has been the highlight of our herbal learning each year as well as our unit's primary fund raiser. Currently, the symposium is scheduled as a garden bus tour in the Spring of each year and an herbal learning luncheon event in the Fall of each year. These symposia support all of our local projects, scholarships, and donations made periodically to The Herb Society of America or to the National Herb Garden, Washington, D.C.
Our Pennsylvania Heartland Unit meetings are held on the third Thursday or Saturday of each month from September through April.Our monthly programs are open to the public in October, November, January, February and March of each year.
The Herb Society of America, Inc. is composed of seven regional membership districts. Our Pennsylvania Heartland Unit is located within the Mid-Atlantic District.
