The Evening Herb Guild Annual Plant Auction was held June 7 at the home of Marion Gordon, Guild president, in Rootstown.

"The chilly weather did not deter the sale of herbs, plants and garden curiosities auctioned for the annual fundraiser," said Gordon.

Many of the items were perennials donated by members. Species and cultivars were unusual and a description of each was offered with suggestions for optimum growth success.

"Refreshments were herb-infused with basil, tarragon and mint," explained Gordon.

The July meeting on Wednesday will be A Blender's Guide to Essential Oils.

The primary focus of the Evening Herb Guild is to enhance herbal knowledge and to share that knowledge with others. The Evening Herb Guild usually meets on the first Wednesday of the month. Meetings are held in the homes of members or various locations only determined by the activity or the topic.
