Herbs for Fall

Tuesday, October 4  |  Zilker Botanical Garden

9:30 a.m. Check in & Refreshments  |  10 a.m. Program

Wondering what herbs grow well in fall? If so, you won't want to miss our October meeting, “Herbs for Fall.” Attendees will receive a list of the best plants for fall–and what they need to flourish—as well as gardening tips from AHS members who have “been there, done that.” After the program, take a stroll through the Zilker Herb Garden for design inspiration. As a special treat, the AHS Hospitality table will feature refreshments made with fall herbs, and our Culinary Study Group will provide some favorite fall recipes.

Visitors and guests are welcome!

If you would like to attend a meeting–either in person or via Zoom–contact us at and provide your name, email address and phone number. Watch for an email from AHS confirming your attendance and/or providing a Zoom link to the meeting. Interested in learning more about AHS? Email us at, and we’ll be happy to provide you with information about our organization and membership benefits.

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
