Upcoming Event: Spring Gathering ~WVHA Spring Gathering May 20, 2023, Elkins, WV
Gardening for Health
WVHA Spring Gathering is May 20, 2023. We start our 31st year with the sad death of the founder of WVHA Marion Harless. She would never give herself credit, but she gathered women and men together in 1992 and they started the WVHA that has grown to over 900 members through the years. Our focus for this Spring Gathering is her favorite pastime: Gardening with Herbs and Medicinal Plants. She considered herself an "Herbarist" -- an older and now retired word -- one who grows and uses medicinal plants. The more adopted terminology is Herbalist, but an herbalist may or may not grow their own plants, and Herbarist always grows his or her own plants. In her memory let's revive this word: Herbarist!
