J.PattonThe Wisconsin Unit of the Herb Society of America announced its eighteenth annual Spring Symposium, which will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2012, at the Women’s Club of Wisconsin.

The symposium will celebrate 2012’s Herb of the Year, the rose. The event will begin with a social hour, where guests can enjoy an herbal continental breakfast, register for door prizes, purchase raffle tickets and visit the herbal marketplace. Next, the symposium will feature guest speaker Helene Pizzi, a rose enthusiast back by popular demand from Rome, who will charm the audience with the history and romance of the rose. Then, with rose-filled thoughts bouncing through their heads, attendees will eat a multicourse herbal gourmet luncheon that features—you guessed it—roses.

To register for the event, visit the Wisconsin Unit of the Herb Society of America's registration website. The event fee is $60 for HSA members, and $65 for non-members. For more information visit the event website.
