Membership in the Maumee Valley Herb Society (MVHS) is open to all who are interested in studying, growing and using herbs and making that knowledge and its application available beyond the society. Members tend the Herb Garden at Toledo Botanical Garden (TBG) each Tuesday morning during the growing season. Members are listed in the MVHS Directory, receive a monthly newsletter and are included in all society events. (An additional fee may be required for field trips, etc.)
Members of MVHS are encouraged to become actively involved in the work of the Society by participating in one or more of the following events and/or areas:
- Spring Plant Sale (May)
A mother’s day weekend event during which MVHS sells herbal plants and shares knowledge about growing and using herbs.
- Arts in the Garden (August)
A Sunday afternoon when MVHS members welcome the public for tours of the herb garden.
- Heralding the Holidays (December)
A weekend sale of herbal products, crafts, blends, baked goods, and gifts. Also a fundraiser.
- Working in the herb garden
Planning, planting, maintaining the herb garden at Toledo Botanical Garden weekly during the growing season.
- Contributing to the newsletter
- Serving as an officer or chairman of our events
We believe that active participation benefits not only the Society in meetings its goals, but the individual who expresses interest in learning about herbs by joining the organization.
