Welcome to Herbal Education in The Greater Lehigh Valley! 

This group was created to share knowledge about herbs as food and medicine for body, mind and spirit. The format will include herb walks, herbal medicine workshops, medicine making classes, wild foods gathering & whole foods cooking, herb garden design & planning, plant sales and farm, garden & nursery visits.

Since integrative health is so important for our families & communities, we'll plan some yoga hikes, outdoor yoga classes, movement workshops, meditation & breathing techniques workshops and similar topics.

NO SHOW POLICY:    If you RSVP and don't show up for the event then the Organizer will remove you from the membership.  You will have 3 chances.  I  know that everybody is busy and sometimes we forget to change our RSVP, but in order to be in this group you need to RSVP and change it if you decide you cannot make it to the event.  Please do not RSVP at the last minute unless there is a legitimate emergency.  Although we enjoy sharing these events with you, it takes time, energy and effort to organize & plan them so please be mindful.  Also, if you don't show up you are taking away space from someone else who may have wanted to attend.  Thanks for your understanding.  Theresa B.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
