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.
 
Herbal Programming

One of the benefits of membership of the Herb Society is to participate in our informative programming. General Meetings of the Herb Society of Manitoba are held at Assiniboine Park Conservatory. The Conservatory is located at 15 Conservatory Drive in Assiniboine Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and are generally held on the third Monday of each month except for December, July and August. See our Programming page for the schedule. Attendance at meetings is free to our members. Guests are welcome. There is a $5.00 fee for guests to attend.

Meetings generally begin with a brief presentation of Herb Society business, then there is a short break. The Hospitality Committee provides herbal goodies for everyone to try during the break. Right after the break, the speaker begins their presentation. To find out more about the next upcoming event, check our News page. Questions or ideas for programming, please contact our Programming Chair at: programs@herbsocietymb.com.


Herb Garden

The Herb Garden located near the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg Manitoba is one of our proudest accomplishments. The garden became a reality in the spring of 1997 when the Women's Television Network (WTN) was filming a program called the Herbal Primer. The Herb Society of Manitoba continues to maintain and develop this lovely garden designed by Landscape Architect and Herb Society member, Natasa Juck.

Each season, Herb Society members volunteer their time and efforts to plant, maintain and harvest herbs from our garden. Donations toward the ongoing upkeep of the garden can be made by sending a cheque or money order made out to the Herb Society of Manitoba: Herb Garden and mailing it to the Herb Society of Manitoba, PO Box 61004 RPO Grant Park, Winnipeg, MB R3M 3X8. Make sure you visit our lovely garden when you visit the park!

The Bev Lloyd Memorial Library

The Bev Lloyd Memorial Library is a great resource available only to members of the Herb Society. Books are signed out from the Herb Society's Library at General Meetings. Each year, all books are collected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is held in June, and are then made available again for borrowing the following September. Due to the increasing size of the library, not all books are brought to each meeting. Attempts are made to provide seasonally relevant books. You can talk to the Librarian at General meetings or send her an email at library@herbsocietymb.com to see if books on a specific topic are available and arrange to have a particular book or two brought to the next meeting for you. Please give her sufficient warning to locate books prior to a meeting.


Prairie Sage Quarterly (PSQ)

The Society distributes an interesting and informative newsletter to its membership called the Prairie Sage Quarterly (PSQ). The PSQ contains information about our upcoming speakers and activities as well as informative book reviews and articles on the use of herbs, including great herbal recipes to try. Select back issues are available for viewing from the PSQ page.
