Next Meeting: Wednesday, December 6: Our Annual Silent Auction and featured speakers

The holidays are upon us! Get ready for our North Country Herbalist Guild 2017 Silent Auction held on Wednesday, December 6th in the church gym.

This year we will feature a panel of herbalists to answer all the questions you have been wanting to ask!!  What would you like to ask Lise Wolff, Dr. Spencer Blackie, Erin Piorier, Clare Nieto, LuAnn Raadt?  Questions from you will keep this event lively and informative so be ready to ask away!!  Our group is well versed in growing plants, making herbal remedies and using herbs for health and wellness.  Perhaps you have questions on how to grow your business using social media, we have answers for that as well. 


The North Country Herbalist Guild has lost a great friend and advocate for Mother Earth. Many of us will value the time we spent visiting his wonderful land and harvesting herbs there. He was a gracious host and teacher of how to honor the land and keep it natural and organic.

Bruce F. Bacon, age 76, passed away on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at home on the more than 100-year-old family farm in Ramsey, where he had lived since 1970.

Bruce was an organic farmer who built the soil, managed woods and prairie, and made Garden Farme a mecca for students, interns, environmental groups, as well as musicians and hundreds of friends, for nearly 50 years.

Bruce is survived by his children, Justin and Thorsten; and five grandchildren.

Both herbal medicine and intention have been studied separately in their own distinct fields. To date, there is no systematic documentation regarding the pairing of herbal medicine and intention and how they work together in practice.
