Annual AHG Symposium General Information

The American Herbalists Guild is pleased to present the 28th Annual Symposium, to be held October 5 - 9, 2017, at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton, Oregon. The 28th Annual Symposium hosts some of the world’s leading herbal educators delivering cutting edge presentations on a wide range of topics in herbal medicine.

Explore Herbalism in Action 

We believe that herbs, and herbalists, are much-needed catalysts for positive change in today’s world. Whether in the forest, the clinic, or the streets, herbalism is offering new models of healing to communities everywhere. Our annual gathering is dedicated to honoring and exploring the people, plants, and practices that put herbalism in action in so many diverse ways.

The Annual Symposium features over 40 lectures, as well as pre- and post-Symposium intensives, and a NEW Virtual Track with sessions ranging from beginning to advanced. Herbal practitioners, medical professionals, herb students, and herbal newcomers will be able to learn from skilled botanists on plant walks, take part in panel discussions, and find out about leading companies in herbal products, education, and more at the Expo Hall. 

Action-Based Herbalism in Practice

Herbalism is a dynamic, constantly evolving practice that grows and changes throughout time to meet the needs of the communities it serves. We now find ourselves at a point in history where the need for herbalism has never been greater. Our task is to develop new and creative ways to bring herbalism to more people.

Our 28th Annual Symposium is dedicated to offering practical support, and a liberal dose of inspiration, as we work together to find more ways to provide effective, affordable, culturally appropriate herbal health care to our communities. To serve this goal, this year’s Symposium will offer the following focused educational track: Action-Based Herbalism in Practice. Symposium attendees will be awarded certificates for completing a specified number of educational track sessions during the Symposium.
