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. We also work to compile 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. Together, we form a strong network with each member lending his or her own energies and expertise to form an organization that educates and informs individuals and other groups about herbs and holistic modalities.
CHA serves as a forum for exchange of information and discussion regarding importance issues in the herbal community. These issues concern therapies, research, education, workshops, growing, retailing, wild crafting, herbal supplies, as well as environmental, legal and legislative concerns.
CHA hosts events and gatherings around the state throughout the year. These include presentations by members and guest speakers, visits to retail shops, gardens, farms or wild places 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.
