Have you ever used the herb savory? Did you know it’s considered one of the best possible herbs for flavoring bean dishes? That it makes a fine restorative tea? That it comes in several forms and grows wild all over the northern hemisphere, including in the United States?

Find out all about this dynamic plant when the Baton Rouge Unit of the Herb Society of America meets at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 28, at the Burden Center, 4560 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge.

Julie Walsh, chair of the Herb of the Year committee, will make the presentation on this ancient, delicious, useful, but often overlooked herb, and members and visitors will be able to taste some of the savory delights made with it. Plants, including various savories, will be for sale.

The group’s annual meeting gets started at 6:30 p.m., where members will vote on nominees for office and on some changes in the by-laws.

The meeting is free for members and $5 for guests.
