Our Members

Many of our members are sought after lecturers and writers for their expertise in gardening, herbs, and cooking.   So, a little bit about our members.

Judy Cornellier

For over 25 years Judy has been a popular Lecturer at Garden Clubs in the Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association and the Federated Clubs of Michigan. In addition after completing her Master Gardening Program she started lecturing for Master Gardener Programs in Herbs and Topiaries.  Judy is an Advanced Master Gardener and a charter member of the Troy Garden Club.

Annie Gruber

She modestly describes herself as a mother, grandmother, chef, gardener, crafter, scrapbooker, bookclubber, party planner, former shopkeeper, and nature lover. Despite Annie’s modesty, many Michigan Herb Associates (MHA) members know she is a master of many talents.  She is a member of The Herb Society of America, Southern Michigan Unit; long-time member of MHA; and regularly writes The Herbal Table for the MHA Journal. Her Journal articles chronicling her family’s annual gatherings give a great deal of insight into how to have a  fun, creative, and relaxed  event.
