Workshops

Education is the cornerstone of the SC Herbal Society.  Our workshops are intended to take you a bit further into the world of herbs through hands-on/hands-in workshops, informative seminars on current research and techniques, and field trips that give you a view of herbal gardens and introduce you to other herbal enthusiasts.

 

If you would like to hold a workshop for your group or organization, please contact us for details.
