Letter from our President Carol Sommer

The Chagrin Valley Herb Society is made up of the most special, friendly people who love to share their love of gardening, herbs and nature. Additionally, you all care deeply about each other. I felt "at home" when I bought my first herbs at an annual plant sale and when Laverne Nolan invited me to attend my first CVHS meeting. As our president, I look forward to working with each of you, as we continue to share our love of growing herbs and flowers and share our friendships. More experienced gardeners are always ready to mentor less experienced gardeners.

The next few years will be challenging and exciting, as our CVHS Herb Garden physically changes to better integrate into the new Bainbridge Library. Thanks to the loving hard work of all of our members, our gardens presently look so welcoming and beautiful. May our Garden continue to provide beauty and comfort to citizens in the community as they wander through the plantings and rest in our Tea House. Join us at our meetings; Joyce Southerland has planned some intriguing programs.

Each year I am more thankful for the friendly, welcoming members of the Chagrin Valley Herb Society. In 2019, may we continue to share friendship, knowledge and laughter.

Carol Sommer
