The Louisa Herb Guild is a group of herb enthusiasts committed to bringing Louisa County history to life through gardening. We began in 2014 with a 20' x 20' demonstration herb garden, growing herbs typical of the 18th and 19th centuries in Central Virginia. Our objectives are to: 1. Maintain and grow a demonstration Heritage Garden at the Heritage Farm 2. Educate visitors about herbs through special programs 3. Develop a self-guided tour with herb identification smart phone app. The Herb Guild will resume outdoor meetings in spring 2021.
We host periodic research workshops on specific research topics. Check our calendar for details!
