Most counties also have a local herb society. Your county agricultural extension office would probably have information. To find your Ohio County Extension Office: http://ohioline.osu.edu/county. For Pennsylvania, www.extension.psu.edu.
To purchase herb seeds and plants by phone or online, these are some of the best.
Most seed catalogues contain a wealth of information about cultivation, use of herbs, and sometimes their healing qualities.
