Wednesday, December 5

Doors open at 6:00pm, with the lecture beginning at 7:00pm

We are honored to have Dr. Helen Healy as our guest speaker, with her presentation “Influential Herbalists and Impressive Herbs”.

Come early to shop our silent auction, enjoy some wonderful snacks and beverages and meet and mingle with friends of the Guild, old and new. It’s a great time to pick up some holiday gifts, such as herbal syrups, tinctures and salves, gift sets and baskets, artwork, jewelry, and gift cards from great local businesses.

We are always so grateful to our members and supporters for their generous donations. The funds raised allow the Herbalist Guild to continue on, sharing knowledge of the amazing plants and herbs we all respect so much. We look forward to seeing you as we wrap up 2018, and thank you for all the support you have shown us this year!

Sue, Haggith, Vince and Tammy

Special Announcement:

Dear NCHG members,
My boyfriend is a metalworker based in St. Paul and he's making a small batch of high quality tincture presses to sell to other members of the herbal community.
The presses will be 3" diameter x 3.5" tall, about 4 oz.- 8 oz. capacity, and the components are all food-grade stainless steel. The price is $100 and the presses will be ready by the end of January. Below are photos and video of the first prototype — the final version will have a few modifications including a welded top piece and a squatter shape. Please let me know if you might be interested in purchasing one, or if you have any questions — you can reach me at

Thanks! Sara Nelson,
NCHG member
