Herb Education Resources

Welcome to our new Resource Directory!

Inspired by the many herb-related businesses sprouting up all over the Southeast, we created our directory to help build a robust interdependent web within our regional herb community.

And in case you are wondering, the listings in our directory are based on our utterly biased decision to include them. If your business is included here and the information is incorrect, or if you have a business that you think belongs here, send us an email for more details. Listings are free, but we reserve the right to decide what is included.
