Thank you for your interest in the Mendocino County Herb Guild. After over a year of gathering, visioning, and organizing, we are excited about the many ways herbs can help create resilient communities and regenerative economies in our County. The seeds are planted, and the time is ripe to nourish our visions and make them realities!
Below is a list of “pods” (also known as “committees”), each representing a part of the overall vision. Those within each pod will determine the action plan and needs to move those ideas forward. The timeline, flow, and style is completely up to each group to decide. This is your Guild, and we are creating this together.
