Herbs For Everyday Living

Knot in the Western Reserve Herb Society Herb Garden.

Immerse yourself in all things herbal on Saturday, October 8th, 2011 at the Western Reserve Herb Society’s 66th Annual Herb Fair. This one day event held at the Cleveland Botanical Garden (the “Garden”), 11030 East Blvd., Cleveland, Ohio from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. features unique and exquisitely handcrafted culinary and decorative herbal products.  Parking at the Garden will be free with a $20 Herb Fair purchase.

Horseradish was named “Herb of the Year” by the International Herb Association. You will discover unusual horseradish products with a bite such as jellies, mustards and other savories. Not to be missed in 2011, are our favorite artisanal herb breads, one-of-a-kind tussie mussies, ever popular soup wreaths and beautiful herb pressed notecards. Other products include delicious confections, unusual herb blends, fragrant potpourris and soaps, tangy herbal vinegars, delightful teas, and stunning wreaths. Each of our products make unique gifts and are designed to enhance everyday living.

While at the fair, sample the quality of our locally grown herbal products, take a tour of our world renowned Herb Garden, buy raffle tickets for some truly distinctive garden plants, products and accessories and enjoy the wisdom of Kathleen Gips of the Village Herb Shop as this year’s featured speaker. Your children will enjoy their own herb related activity. And when you leave, your purchases will be available for pickup in Will Call just adjacent to the elevators for the parking garage.

So, come enjoy this special day at our 2011 Herb Fair and celebrate sixty-six years of excellence with us.  Whether you are enhancing your life, the lives of your families and friends, or even someone you have yet to meet, you will enjoy finding that special delicacy or delight at the Fair. We look forward to treating you and you, in turn, will treat others as your purchases will support our public Herb Garden and the scholarships we give to horticultural students as well as promote community education in the use of herbs.
