Our Mission

Canadian Herb Conference is a project of Gardens without Borders (#440930-2), a registered not-for-profit organization.

What We Do
  • provide educational access, online & in-person, to high-quality herbal, horticultural and regenerative agricultural workshops. 
  • receive and make charitable donations to support environmental associations, Canadian herbal associations aligned with our purpose.
  • subsidize access to educational workshops through scholarship and work trade programs.
Our History & Impact
In 2022, we presented a 90 minute panel about Herb Conference as a Trend and Tradition and the history of our project so far. You can watch it below:
Our Team

Our small but mighty Organizing Committee team makes the Vancouver Island Gathering, Kootenay Herb Gathering, and the Canadian Herb Conference happen.

We work alongside amazing work traders, contractors and local community groups,  rental companies, and sponsors to pull together all of the magic of being together in community.
