Workshop in March to Meet Buyer from Mountain Rose Herbs, and More!

Mountain Rose Herbs ( ), a much-loved and respected medicinal herb supply company (I have six big bags of their herbs sitting in my office right now!) wants to buy medicinal herbs grown and sustainably wild-harvested from our Southeast region with a particular interest in our native botanicals. Brian Russell, the buyer, will be attending the Organic Growers School ( ) on March 8 and 9 in Asheville, so we have taken the opportunity to put together an afternoon workshop on Friday, March 7th so interested growers and wild-harvesters can meet Brian, learn what he would like to buy from this area, and what you need to do to sell to him. It will give him a chance to learn what we have to offer. There will also be presentations by Joe-Ann McCoy from the N.C. Arboretum on how to make a voucher, by Sarah Schober on what the Bionetwork Natural Products Laboratory has to offer you, and by Jennifer Flynn on the Blue Ridge Naturally Brand (something Mountain Rose is very interested in). I might say a few words, too.

Space is limited, so register now on EventBrite at: The event will be held at the Haynes Conference Center on the AB-Tech Enka Campus near Asheville (an address and map will be posted soon).
