About Austin Herb Society & Zilker Herb Garden

Since 1982, the Austin Herb Society has been educating members and the community about herbs, including propagation, landscaping, history, folklore, and culinary, medicinal, and decorative uses of herbs. While our members are united by an interest in herbs, they are also a diverse group of individuals: from gardeners and herbalists to cooks and business owners.

AHS members design and maintain the Zilker Herb Garden—a dazzling landscape of color and fragrance that has become a centerpiece of Zilker Botanical Garden. Here, visitors can touch, taste and smell their way through nearly 200 varieties of herbs, depending on the season. Bees and butterflies dot the beds of basil, lavender and calendula. There are classic culinary herbs like rosemary, mint and thyme alongside herbs revered for their health attributes, including aloe and echinacea.



In addition to hands-on learning in the Zilker Herb Garden, members enjoy:

  • Monthly meetings with expert speakers on diverse topics

  • Educational workshops & seminars throughout the year

  • Study groups focused on culinary herbs and herbal products

  • Field trips to unique gardens and herb-loving businesses

  • Delicious herbal refreshments at in-person meetings

  • Fellowship with interesting & informed herb lovers
