Northeast Herbal Association
Our roots were planted in December 1991 when a small group of herbalists gathered to share their ideas and experiences. They discovered a common need for a regional voice, and so created a means for networking and for showcasing professional educational opportunities; a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and for the discussion of topics such as herbal remedies, growing and wildcrafting, retailing, supply resources, and herbal crafts; and a trusted source for answers to legal and political issues. From this gathering the Northeast Herbal Association was formed.
