We are the Texas Thyme Unit, a Unit of the Herb Society of America. We meet at 10:00AM, the fourth Wednesday of the month (No meeting in July) at the Huntsville United Methodist Church on 1016 Sam Houston Ave., Huntsville, TX 77340. We are dedicated to promoting the knowledge, use and delight of herbs through educational programs, research, and sharing our experience with the community.
Our group was founded in 2009. Since then we have planted the Ella Ruth Herb Garden, the Children's Sensory Garden and built the Herb Cottage on the grounds of the historic Wynne Home in Huntsville. In 2016, the Unit, with the support of the Huntsville Garden Club, completed the Memorial Rose Garden. The Garden commemorates the contribution of roses by the Garden Club to the grounds of the Wynne Home. We decorate the gardens for seasonal events held at the Wynne Home Arts Center.TTU members maintain all of these gardens. Our members also teach classes in the culinary, landscape, and creative use of herbs. Our members regularly present herbs to Huntsville school children and Master Gardener groups. Our annual spring Herb Festival has become a destination. Thousands of herb, butterfly and vegetable plants, mostly grown by our members, are offered for sale. Vendors, speakers, children's activities, artists, and music make this day a unique experience for the whole family. Our next Herb Festival is Saturday, March 28, 2020 on the grounds of the Wynne Home Arts Center in Huntsville.
Anyone who has an interest in herbs is welcome to join us. We welcome all levels of interest.
