A Big Thanks to all who joined us at this years
Vancouver Island Herb Gathering!

Herbal Medicine in the Community 2019 – Video Re-cap


The Vancouver Island Herb Gathering is a place where we come together to celebrate plants and people.
Nestled in a beautiful herb farm, in the heart of the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island BC,

herbal teachers, students and plant lovers from across North America get together every 2 years.

We celebrate, we laugh, we learn, and we meditate with plant medicine as our focus, and community as our backbone.

It is our belief that plant medicine is people’s medicine, so it is with this intention that the space is prepared for a weekend of herbalism and plant medicine.

Each time we get together the awareness strengthens, the community builds and the movement grows.

This is a not for profit gathering, with proceeds going to support herbalism in BC, plant protection and land conservation.

It is our intention that we be the change we want to see in the world, so with this in mind we invite you to join our tribe.
