Anyone interested in herbs is encouraged to join the Herb Society of Nashville (HSN). There are wonderful benefits to membership, including numerous opportunities for learning and enjoyment. Educational programs include: lectures by experts in a wide range on topics related to growing and using herbs. Also members enjoy exclusive opportunities to participate in workshops where members learn new crafts, experience fun culinary adventures, and study about the botany, horticulture and therapeutic applications of herbs. Together, members care for an herb garden at Cheekwood and another at Centennial Park. Most importantly, there are ample opportunities for members to spend time in companionship with other members. We are a diverse and passionate lot! Finally members of the Herb Society of Nashville receive automatic membership in the Herb Society of America which provides further opportunities for educational growth.
HSN is a working organization and members fulfill an annual allotment of education and service hours. Requirements include: attending two Unit Meetings, working three shifts in our herb gardens (two at Cheekwood and one at Centennial Park) annually, and completing 24 additional education and service hours in HSN-sponsored activities. During the first year of membership, new members are expected to attend a special series of meetings designed to familiarize new members with our organization (which count toward the 24 hours).
