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 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.  We then move on to our charitable event of the year, Basil Fest - which is coming up this year on May 19th at the historic Pearl Brewery.  We also participate in seminars, speaking events and classes, culminating in Herb Market at the Pearl Brewery which features the Herb of the Year in cooking demonstrations.  This year - 2018 - it is Hops, which will be a very interesting challenge for our celebrity chef, Dave Terrazas from San Antonio's Botanical Gardens. Please join us at these events, which are both fun and interesting !
