Herb Guild to spruce up Rose Hill garden

The May 11 meeting of the Herb Guild will be held at the Rose Hill Herb Garden, which is located in Cahoon Park between Wolf Road and Lake Road in Bay Village. The Herb Garden is located by the Cahoon House in the park and has been the longest supported garden effort by the Herb Guild. Volunteer teams tend to the garden monthly, weeding and watering as needed.

The meeting will start at 10 a.m., followed by a vigorous workout in the garden to spruce it up after the long winter. Members are asked to bring garden gloves and tools.

The guest speaker for this meeting will be Shirley Swindell, who will talk about growing a low-maintenance garden, something everyone needs in these busy times. She will also conduct a “make and take” workshop. Non-members will be asked to pay $5 for the workshop.

Tickets for the long-awaited Scholarship Luncheon, which will be held on Aug. 3, will go on sale at the May meeting. The cost of the luncheon is $35 and includes a full course lunch, a guest speaker, culinary tasting table, basket raffle, silent auction and bake sale. This is a fun event not to be missed. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Kathie Conrad at 215-872-9725.

As always, new members and guests are welcome. For further information on the upcoming meeting, call 440-582-0191 or visit our website theherbguild.org. You can also find us on Facebook under The Herb Guild.
