Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme...

You know, even though our name isn't "Herb Garden Village," there is a special place on our grounds that is pretty important to us. Since 1992, Log Cabin Village has partnered with the Greater Fort Worth Herb Society (GFWHS) to provide an additional place of respite and education here on our beautiful wooded grounds.

The GFWHS has taken their job very seriously. Year after year they donate hundreds of volunteer hours planning, cultivating, harvesting, and maintaining our herb garden. They research to find native and historically accurate species. They design their work with the Village's needs first and foremost in their mind. And they do it all quietly behind the scenes, often arriving before we open to the public, working diligently, then slipping out (let me put to rest right now the notion that we consider them garden elves...or gnomes).

We'd like to take this opportunity, once again, to thank them for all the hard work they do to help keep our garden looking beautiful and peaceful. Once you view the photos, we think you'll agree that they do a wonderful job!

Thank you for your presentation of the Herb garden. I think every member of the Greater Fort Worth Herb Society would tell you that working in the garden is a Labor of Love.

Thank you for the wonderful pictorial tour of the Herb Garden and kind words about our work. It is a beautiful and restful area of the village and we enjoy being in it.
