2021 Herbal Conferences

Desert southwest

NEW! It looks like it will be another online year in 2021. Participate from anywhere and still enjoy the high-quality botanical information and continuing education credits you’ve come to rely on.

Registration will feature live videos with Q & A, pre-recorded presentations, in-person herb walks and field studies for local participants (if safety considerations allow), a complimentary online book of notes/PowerPoints and a free set of audio recordings.

We are looking forward to seeing you all online in 2021 at these events. More details and registration information coming soon!
