The New England Unit
of The Herb Society of America
This page was last updated on: March 19, 2014
The New England Unit is the founding unit of The Herb Society of America. In 1933, seven women formed an educational society dedicated to the study and use of herbs. The Society has grown from one unit to 45, and from the initial seven members to more than 2,400 members in the United States, Canada and other countries. The New England Unit has approximately eighty members, living mostly in Massachusetts.  

The New England Unit maintains a Teaching Herb Garden at Elm Bank (home of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society) in Wellesley, MA. Please come and visit the garden!

Throughout the year, the New England Unit holds educational symposia, meetings and workshops on herbal topics. These are held at Elm Bank, as well as other locations. Our meetings are generally held during the day, during the week, to accommodate the distances members travel. 

We hold an annual Herb Plant Sale at Elm Bank, which is open to the public. Our plant sale is traditionally held the day before Mother's Day (in May). Sign up to get a post card reminder in 2014, by filling out this form

If you have a sincere interest in herbs, and feel you can actively participate in the activities of the Unit, consider joining us. This is a volunteer organization which relies on its members for help and support. The membership application form is available here: About Us/Membership.
