About the Guild
The North Country Herbalist Guild is a non–profit organization dedicated to promoting education in the practice of therapeutic herbalism.
Our mission is to serve as a resource to the community and to create a network of support and communication among herbalists in the upper Midwest.
Our programs are designed to encourage ethical collection and preservation techniques and to promote education that increases awareness of ecological balance and a healthy environment.
The North Country Herbalist Guild sponsors monthly meetings that take place on the first Wednesday of every month (except January and July). The meetings are open to the Guild’s membership and the public. At each of these meetings we sponsor a local speaker who discusses topics designed to advance the study of the therapeutic use of herbs.
Lectures are from 7:00 to 8:30 pm on the first Wednesday of the month (except January and July). One or two of our summer meetings are plant walks. We invite you all for social time with tea and snacks from 6:30 to 7:00.
The North Country Herbalist Guild makes every effort to present a broad educational program and to make these programs available and affordable. Local speakers, members, and board members all donate their time in these efforts. Meetings are open to the public with a suggeted donation of five dollars, however no one will be turned away. Members attend meetings at no charge.
The Guild sends out a reminder of our upcoming meetings and events to our members. If you would like to sign up for our member mailing list to receive our annual postcard and monthly email newsletters visit our join page to sign up online. We send out monthly email notices & an annual postal mailing.
The Guild also conducts an annual meeting of its membership that includes election of board members in November.
