The National Herb Garden was established by the Herb Society of America in 1985. The gardens were constructed on a two-and-a-half-acre site at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., the garden was completed in 1980 after fifteen years of planning and fundraising by a group of dedicated Society members. In the end, $200,000 was raised by The Society and was matched by a $200,000 grant from the U.S. government.
