From monthly meetings to local workshops and herbal conferences around the country, #GALOWCOUNTRYAHG is always up to something good.
Monthly Meetings in Savannah:
Every month we gather at a chapter member's home to share ideas, herbal lessons and potluck-style food. We conduct chapter business before we eat. Our collective culinary skills continually impress. If you would like to attend our AHG chapter's monthly meetings, please sign up to receive updates. All are welcome.
“The time has come to reclaim the stolen harvest and celebrate the growing and giving of food as the highest gift and most revolutionary act.” - eco-activist Vandana Shiva
