“I never miss the annual fall KPB luncheon! It’s a great chance to catch up with friends in the community, shop for new varieties of native plants and the speaker is always great,” says KPB Board Member Laura Austin.
This year, the luncheon features guest speaker, gardener and writer Ann McCormick, “The Herb‘n Cowgirl.” If you enjoy cooking with herbs, organic gardening, or just love hearing a sunny perspective on life, then mark your calendar to join us. Ann has devoted her time since 1998 to writing and speaking about her favorite subject, herbs. She is a columnist for the Herb Quarterly and writes feature articles for The Dallas Morning News. Ann’s love of gardening began in her dad’s fruit orchard and mother’s flower gardens in rural California. After many years in an aerospace career, a well-planned mid-life crisis shifted her to pursue her interest in herbs. She now lives in Texas writing about and working in her herb gardens and traveling to share her love for growing and cooking with herbs.
