The purposes of the Western Reserve Herb Society (WRHS) are to further the knowledge and use of herbs and to contribute the results of the experience and research of its members to the records of horticulture and science and to disseminate this information through various channels.
WRHS was founded on May 22, 1943 and and shortly after its founding became a unit of The Herb Society of America. As a result, members enjoy not only the many advantages of belonging to WRHS, but also the benefits of membership in a national organization.
Members of WRHS enjoy lectures, symposia, making herbal products, growing herbs, field trips, gardening and the camaraderie of people with similar interests. Outside of meetings, members communicate and share information in the members only section of the website and the members’ monthly newsletter, Herb Scents.
