Greetings Florida Herb Society Members and Visitors! Here is a little recap of last month. We had Dr. Linde teaching us about what Western and Chinese Herbs we should have in our herbal first aid kit, how to use them, and his own experiences with first aid. Some of our goodies from the tasting table. We had Rosemary cookies, Fennel cookies and Lavender cookies. The herb of the month was Elderberry. We had Elderberry iced tea and elderberry syrup shots. We learned a lot and had a wonderful turnout. We hope to see you all this coming Tuesday. Details below.
The first meeting of 2015 will celebrate the 41 year history of the Florida Herb Society!
This coming Tuesday, We will have a collection of past board members, Presidents, and other members who have been with the Herb Society over the years to speak about the history of our organization, share photos and memories, and honor those members who are no longer with us. Please bring any memorabilia that may be of interest to the other members, or that you would like included in the FHS archives or added to our library at Acupuncture and Herbal Therapies. This year we are undertaking the digitization of our archives, so that we have a way of preserving our history in additional to the paper records. If you would like to assist in scanning and uploading old newsletters, please contact Sharon or Amy.
