Hello Fellow Herbalists
Hope everyone is getting ready for the herb fair. Last year the morning of the herb fair went very well we had five volunteer’s please sign up. Larry and Julie Agee went to Illinois to see Alma and they said everything looks good she will have to make a few substitutions which is normal. We will need to talk about Earth Day at SMW we will need someone to volunteer to work if we are going to have a table. I will bring a calendar for people to sign up to keep the garden clean and watered for the rest of the growing season.
