The Herb Society of South Australia was formed in 1977 to promote the study of growth, history and use of herbs. It is open to all people interested in herbs and their uses.
Everyone is welcome to join, attend meetings, become involved with specific groups such as the ‘Seed Savers’, specialise in specific plants such as salvias, help with our garden maintenance programmes at various gardens, and come on our Tagalong tours throughout the state. We are an active and involved group – interested? – check out the calendar of events for more information and activities, and come along to meet other keen enthusiasts.
