Mediterranean Centerpiece Herb Society of American Delaware Valley Unit Logo

The Herb Society of America is dedicated to promoting the knowledge, use, and delight of herbs through educational programs, research, and sharing the experience of its members with the community. The Delaware Valley Unit of the Herb Society of America meets monthly at the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum, where we cultivate an International Culinary Herb Garden. We also sponsor several educational programs about herbs locally every year, and conduct an annual Herb Sale the third Saturday every May where one can find the old favorites and many unique herb plants.

Herb Sale 2021 is open for business!!

We are working closely with our grower to provide an excellent experience in two ways: getting orders in early and allowing for substitutions. There are some herbs that we only get one variety. But things like Thyme, Rosemary, Basil, Oregano-we are asking you to indicate if you would allow similar substitution or would like a refund. Please look for the substitution question on the online ordering site (below the shop now button) or on the paper order form. And please-SHOP EARLY!!

Please be prompt for your pickup time so we can prevent waiting.

We are looking forward to seeing you again, though socially distant, this spring!!
