All About Herbs Lecture Series

Chair: Denise Nelson

The “All About Herbs” Lecture Series is co-sponsored by the Herb Society of America-Wisconsin Unit and the Ozaukee Master Gardeners. This is the 15th year for the Series.
Each Spring we present a series of three lectures about herbs. The speakers are local professionals who offer presentations on many related subjects. Committee members prepare a variety of herbal refreshments to be sampled during the lectures. The cost is $8 per event, which includes lecture notes and recipes. The Pavilion, on the Cedarburg Fairgrounds, is the location for these events which start at 7:00pm and run until 8:30pm.
