Recap on Expo East & AHVMA Conference

H&A recently exhibited at two industry events, where we were happy to see many friends, colleagues, and customers. Congrats to all of our "Herbal Wellness Basket" winners!

Beth Lambert shares her observations...

Herbal Rockstars Talking!

Preeminent herbalist Rosemary Gladstar has begun a series of interviews with herbal elders – she calls them "inner-views", which we love - and David was her first guest.

Traveling? Don't leave home without your Herbs

Travel can be rewarding. It also brings with it a host of issues that can impact health. Unfamiliar food, a different bed, and being in crowds of people can impact digestion and quality of sleep, as well as challenge the immune system. Planning to have the right herbal formulas on hand can go a long way in helping to maintain health.

David Winston’s Students: Where Are They Now?

The photo above is David enjoying a beautiful day to celebrate Herb Day 2023 at the Well-Sweep Herb Farm with just a few of his former students. David loves catching up with his past students. Being the dedicated herbalists they all are, he often finds many of them attending the conferences or schools he is teaching at.

This Newsletter is dedicated to all the past David Winston School of Herbal Studies students we have interviewed and to welcome the interviews to come. Please click the button below to enjoy the wonderful stories of inspiration, perspiration, and dedication of their herbal studies journey.

REMINDER: Local Pickup Now Available

Local customers have long requested the option of picking up their orders directly from us, and now they can! Yet another great advantage of having so much more space in our new home is that we now have a system for people to pick up their orders from our facility.
Media update

Nutritional Outlook Magazine’s editor-in-chief Jen Grebow has been interviewing industry leaders about their hobbies. Last month she spoke with Beth Lambert about dog agility training and dressage.
