Connecticut Herb Association (CHA) was created by a group of enthusiasts with a simple desire to educate and share the diverse world of herbs with one another and our community throughout the state, as well as to create a local network of herb-related resources.
CHA has a diverse membership from the practitioner, student, grower, educator, and shopkeeper to the gardener and novice. All of the members of CHA intricately weave a web that forms together one bond, each member lending his or her own energies and expertise to form the organization we now have that reaches out state wide to educate and inform individuals and other groups about herbs and holistic modalities.
CHA serves as a forum for exchange and discussion of matters of importance in the herbal community such as therapies, research, education, workshops, growing, retailing, wildcrafting, herbal supplies, as well as environmental, legal and legislative concerns impacting herbalism.
CHA hosts events and gatherings around the state throughout the year. These include presentations by members and guest speakers, or visits to a shop, garden, farm or wild place where we can learn and share together the wisdom of all things green. As a member of CHA you will have the opportunity to host an event or gathering in your region of the state.
Membership Special: CHA is offering discounted membership dues to those who participate in three events, and volunteer at least two hours at a major event. Membership fees will be reduced to $15 for the year. So be sure to RSVP to any event. Your participation will count, along with your spirit for the love of plants!
