Volunteer Opportunities

HANB is a volunteer-run organization and relies on the dedication and hard work of its board of directors, committee members, and other volunteers to co-ordinate the many wonderful events and celebrations it offers throughout the year. We have established the following committees but are always open to suggestions for new ones. If you feel HANB could benefit from another committee or work effort, please contact us!

Help plan and organize the Annual Herb Fair, workshops, herb walks, etc.  Attend virtual meetings, find workshop presenters as well as locations for herb walks, help with promotion, etc. People with good organizational skills welcome!

Politics & Standards
