The North Country Herbalist Guild is one of our region's greatest resources for all topics related to herbal medicine. Meeting the first Wednesday of each month, covering a variety of topics, it is geared to both beginners and to practicing herbalists. Social time with snacks and herbal beverages start up at 6:30 with the presenter starting at 7:00. There are usually well over 50 people attending, all very welcoming and interesting persons. I typically go to the meetings - let me know if you plan on going and I'll save you a spot at my table, if you want. It takes a lot to get me to drive into the metro area. These meetings are well worth the drive!
