A SMALL band of local herb enthusiasts are keen to share their love of the versatile little plants this month.

The Peel Districts Branch of the Herb Society of WA Inc was formed 15 years ago and is hosting a Herb Fair in Baldivis on November 10 to wrap up the year.

Group member Dee Bunker said there would be lots of things to entice the senses including things to keep the kids happy.

“There will be an abundance of different herbs for sale, inexpensive herb books for sale and a raffle,” she said.

“There will be a children’s activities table where they can do a couple of easy projects they can take home; one being how to make a pot out of newspaper.”

She said herb experts would be on hand to answer questions about sprouting, companion planting, inexpensive and easy ways to use seeds plus answers to any other herb-related query.

For the adults there will demonstrations on how to create the living flower arrangement with the quirky name: tussie mussies.

The group meets the first Tuesday of each month from February to November at 7.30pm at Mary Davies Library & Community Centre, Settlers Avenue, Baldivis.

“Each meeting we aim to have a speaker, demonstration and/or workshop on a variety of topics relating to herbs,” she said.

“New members are welcome.”
