Who are We?

We are a non-profit group, based in the beautiful Ozarks region of southwest Missouri! Our mission is to educate the public concerning the use of herbs for culinary, medicinal, and craft purposes. We meet monthly to discuss herbs, share recipes, and exchange gardening tips! We also host special events and sponsor tours of local parks, farms and businesses.

The Herb Society is open to the public and we welcome all levels of knowledge! Please explore our website – you will find the latest information regarding our meeting times, special events, local projects, and links to similar interest groups in our area.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us! Better yet, stop by one of our meetings or attend an event – we would love to share our herbal knowledge and passion with you!
