Our organization, at its heart, is all about our members and herbs. We've worked tirelessly for eighty-three years to promote, educate, and investigate herb use throughout history. Your support is vital in continuing this important mission. But did you know that every year, HSA in turn supports education directly with school grants and student scholarships awarded for furthering education in herbs? Last year we awarded more than $12,000 to support learning gardens in schools, in providing scholarships to college students specializing in herb studies, and scientific herb research. Through these means we endeavor to continue and promote the longevity and impact of herbs on our culture and lives.
