General Meetings of the Herb Society of Manitoba are usually held at the Canadian Mennonite University, South Campus - 600 Shaftesbury Blvd. (south of Grant) in Conference Room A01. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and are generally held on the third Monday of each month except July, August and December. There is the odd exception to the third Monday rule and the location so check the schedule below. Information is added regularly, so check back often.

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. Sometimes the order is reversed depending on the speaker and topic. Upcoming speakers are listed below.

Wendy Pearce
I am the author of the upcoming book Foraging For A Meaningful Life, a chronological foraging guide and compilation of essays, lore, recipes and love letters to the woodlands and wetlands of southern Manitoba. I hold foraging classes during the growing season at the Old Inwood Limestone Quarry in Inwood, Manitoba, speak and present at a variety of events across Manitoba over the Winter, and hold makers classes on topics such as broom or besom making, basketry, and seasonal berry or mushroom gathering throughout the year.

Workshop Description
Presentation on herbal teas with an emphasis on foraged native Manitoban herbs and flowers, and I will bring some examples of local flora to display, present and if the group is small enough, give to audience members.
