About Us

The Madison Herb Society is dedicated as a non-profit organization to the education of its members and the general public with regard to the culture and use of herbs. Historically, this organization has been involved in the planning, maintenance and use of the Herb Garden at Olbrich Botanical Gardens and contributes annually to its preservation.

Regular workshops, seminars, lectures and demonstrations provide a forum for exchange of interests, ideas and knowledge regarding herbs. The MHS newsletter keeps members in touch with upcoming events, articles regarding the culinary and medicinal use of herbs as well as decorative projects. The annual Herb Fair, sponsored by the Madison Herb Society, reaches out to the public through lectures and demonstrations and provides an outlet for members to expand their knowledge and abilities to use herbs.

Meetings are held monthly from September to May at the Olbrich Botanical Society in Madison, Wisconsin and annually include an Herbal Tea and a Holiday Potluck for members and their guests.

The Madison Herb Society is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, religious or scientific purposes within the meaning of section 501© (4) of the Internal Revenue Code.
