About HSA-GPU and Our Mission

Mission  The Herb Society 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.

Activities  The Herb Society – Grosse Pointe Unit designs and maintains the four herb plots at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial in the Trial Gardens as well as the new garden at the Services for Older Citizens headquarters. The annual spring herb sale and autumn Herb & Holly Boutique are popular events the Unit sponsors for the community. In addition, a spring educational symposium, most recently a tea and lecture, furthers the goals of the Unit and delights our guests.
