The American Herbalists Guild (AHG) was founded in 1989 as a non-profit, educational organization. AHG works to provide educational opportunities and represent the voices of herbalists to advance their skills in the medicinal use of plants. The primary goal of AHG is to promote the highest level of professionalism and education in the study and practice of therapeutic herbalism.
In 1989, a group of herbalists met in the Santa Cruz, California home of Christopher Hobbs and Beth Baugh. They were inspired to create an organization dedicated to growing herbalism in the United States, thereby, establishing herbal practices as a viable source of health care in every community.
Today, with over 1,750 members all over the world, more than 225 professional members, and over 15 active state chapters, the AHG continues to still strive towards these lofty goals.
In celebration of this impressive milestone, the AHG National Headquarters in Asheville, NC has launched a series, of local, educational, Silver Jubilee events featuring well-known experts in the field of clinical herbalism.
In addition to the Symposium and Silver Jubilee events, other projects planned for this landmark year include a special digital anniversary edition of the Journal of the American Herbalists Guild, an expanded line-up of Professional Herbalist Training Webinars, new membership benefits, and student joining discounts.
