Mike Hills talks about Vetiver Grass (Chrysopogon zizanioides), April 2012 Herb of the Month, at AHA monthly meeting.

The Arizona Herb Association meets the evening of the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm (except July, August, and December).

General meetings take place at The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Office, Maricopa County, at 4341 E. Broadway Rd., Phoenix (location is handicap-accessible with ample parking).

Association business is usually concluded quickly and one or two informative speakers then present an educational program. Members mix and visit afterward while sampling a variety of herbal snacks and beverages provided by the Association. Guest and visitors are always welcome at the meetings; however, non-members may be charged an admission fee when out-of-state guest speakers are featured.
