As a non profit 501 (c) 3 Corporation, our mandate is to bring a knowledge of herbs to the community.  How to grow, cultivate and use them; how to cook with them and how to incorporate their many uses into a healthy lifestyle.  We do this through a variety of outreach events each year, starting with SAWS Spring Bloom being held this year at the SAWS San Antonio main campus, 281 South at N. St. Mary's on March 14th 2020 where we bring out all of our information such as recipes, tee shirts, planting information, which herbs thrive in our San Antonio climate and much more.  And of course, purchase herb plants...We then move on to our charitable event of the year, Basil Fest - which is coming up this year on May 23rd at the historic Pearl Brewery in support of this year's charity, the Down's Syndrome Association of S. Texas.  We also participate in seminars, speaking events and classes, culminating in the annual Herb Market at the Pearl Brewery which features the Herb of the Year in cooking demonstrations.  2019 it was Giant Blue Hyssop, for 2020 it is Raspberries and blackberries et al....which will be a very interesting challenge for our celebrity chef to produce recipes that are delicious and nutritious.  Surprise, surprise for 2021 the herb of the year will be Parsley - finally one we are all familiar with and use with confidence.
