1st Annual Northeast Grassroots Community Herbal Convergence Mission Statement:
The Community Herbal Convergence is an annual bioregional gathering co-created by herbalists and activists. We are committed to accessibility, diversity, equality and sustainability within the fields of Clinical and Community Herbalism, and Herbal Education. The convergence is a celebration and an honoring of both the ancient roots and the new sprouts of people's plant medicine. It is a forum to reclaim our healthcare so that we may better serve our families, communities and the Earth. With elders, teachers and plants as our guides, we envision a world beyond racism, environmental degradation, classism, homophobia, sexism, cultural appropriation and the corporate takeover of herbal medicine. This gathering is a space for creativity, sharing, education, gratitude, inquiry, healing and empowerment. Our intention is to support and nourish diverse, inclusive and reciprocal herbal networks in the Northeast.
