About Us

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.

Presentation Description
Wild Edible Herbs will detail a number of selected herbs, ranging from berries and leaves, to flowers and roots. Their medicinal qualities will be discussed, as well as how to utilize these herbs as daily food. Each herb has unique qualities and characteristics, allowing for healing in the body to take place. Not only are these selected herbs nutritious, but most can be found in our neighbourhoods, backyards, and the prairie landscapes of Manitoba.
