Fundraising Events

We have several major fundraising events and membership drives throughout the year that are fun and informative.

Welcome to the Gulf Coast Herb Society based in Mobile, Alabama!

Our primary mission is to maintain the herb garden located within the Mobile Botanical Gardens. This is an area in the gardens where the joy and delights of plants – taste, touch, fragrance – health and spirituality can be experienced. In addition, we provide educational meetings for our members that foster an interest in growing and using herbs. Throughout the year we have major fundraising events aimed to serve, entertain, and educate the public about the growing and use of herbs. Profits from all events are used for the maintenance of the herb garden.

GCHS Club Meeting:
We meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 5:30pm except for July and November. The meetings are held at the Mobile Botanical Gardens in the Botanical Center building at the top of the hill. Our meetings are open to the public for visitors who are interested in learning and sharing knowledge about herbs and gardening. Please come by and meet us!
