The Herb Society of Manitoba was formed in 1995 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers interested in educating the public about herbs and promoting the use of herbs in everyday life. In 1996, a Constitution was written, a Mission Statement formulated, and the Society officially began its work.

Our meetings are generally held the 3rd Monday of each month and start at 7:00 p.m. at the Canadian Mennonite University South Campus in Winnipeg, Manitoba. For more information on upcoming speakers, please visit the Programming page.

General Meetings are open to the public, however, there is a $5.00 charge for guests to attend. Individual memberships are $25.00/year (Canadian funds).

Mission Statement

The Herb Society of Manitoba is dedicated to promoting knowledge, use and enjoyment of herbs through education, programs, research and sharing the experience of its members with the community.
