Community Herb Dryer
The community herb dryer is Desperation’s focal point – a place where townfolk meet to dry herbs but also swap stories, do a little trading, maybe even dance if there’s a jug band in the vicinity.
Town meetings, religious services, and other public events are held near the community dryer.
Since the SNS outbreak, however, the only time the dryer is surrounded by people is when the inoculations are being distributed.
Before they got sick, Latham Hayes’s daughters could often be found tending to the drying herbs.
