The Herbarist Advertising FAQs

The Herbarist is a long-lived tradition of The Herb Society of America. HSA published the first issue in 1935, only two years after The Society was formed. Since then, or since we began surveying members, The Herbarist has ranked as the most appreciated benefit of HSA membership.

Has The Herbarist always had advertisements?
Yes! The Society’s members and herb-related businesses have supported the journal since the first edition. 12 Units have advertised seven out of the last 10 years (or more) and many Units sponsor authors or the publication itself.

How do current advertising rates compare with those of, say ten years ago?
Well … rates have only increased 8% but the surcharge for color ads has been eliminated for members (units, business embers). This means that a full-page color ad is actually less now than in 2012!

My unit doesn’t have anyone to design an ad. Can we get help from HSA?
Yes. Design work is available for an additional hourly fee. Simply contact HSA's office,

Are there alternate ways for a unit or individual member to assist journal production?
Yes! Your general donations help, for example, to defray printing, graphic design, and mailing costs. Units, districts, members, non-members may demonstrate their appreciation of The Herbarist through donations in any amount.
