C-U Herb Society Annual Herb Plant Sale is May 7th

This event has become a much anticipated community tradition. The annual Champaign-Urbana Herb Society Plant Sale is scheduled for Saturday, May 7th, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until sellout). It will be held inside Lincoln Square in Urbana.

Our annual plant sale is our only fundraising event, and proceeds from the sale will go towards book donations to area libraries, mini-grants to schools, and to our educational public herb garden at Meadowbrook Park. Members of the Herb Society enjoy this opportunity to share their knowledge of herbs with customers.

We will be joining Grand Prairie Friends, African Violet Society, the Central Illinois Orchid Society, the Bonsai Society of Central Illinois, Coyle Woodland Plants, and Marlin Woodland Wildflowers, allowing customers to purchase a variety of plants and learn about the environment in our area. Many of the plants are pollinator friendly and ideal for rain gardens. It will be great for Mother’s Day gifts!
