About Us

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. Our members donate their time to help with a number of local community gardens.  The Springfield Area Herb Society’s meetings are open to the public; people of all levels of knowledge and experience are welcome!
