New Membership Program Features Virtual Collection of Herbal Resources

The Herbal Academy of New England launches exciting new membership program, The Herbarium, for students and community members interested in furthering herbal studies and practices.

In response to overwhelming interest in herbal-based health and wellness and advanced herbal education across the country, and throughout the world, The Herbal Academy of New England (HANE) has launched an exciting new membership program for students and community members interested in furthering their herbal studies and practices.

Named The Herbarium, after the traditional term for an educational collection of dried herbs, this online space serves as a vibrant database of herbal resources from HANE staff, educators, and some of the most brilliant minds in the community. Content within the database ranges from personal experiences out in the field to the latest scientific research, available in a variety of innovative formats from charts to podcasts to stunning photography. The Herbarium is also a place where members can connect, share, and celebrate their studies, with each other and with HANE staff and contributors.

It was evident that we needed a place for our graduates and readers to continue their studies. The Herbarium is that place.

Marlene Adelmann, Director & Founder

Herbarium features include:

  • Monograph Database - A beautiful database of monographs designed to provide quick and easy reference to herbs. Includes quick facts, medicinal uses of each plant, images, botanical prints, and scientific research. By combining traditional herbal wisdom, hands-on experience, and modern scientific research, the monograph collection includes some of the most complete to date.

  • The Library - An ever-expanding collection of in-depth herbal resources including articles, presentations, videos, and podcasts from some of the most brilliant herbal minds.

  • Media - Offers convenient access to downloadable and printable charts and graphs, and e-books on various herbal topics.

  • Member Perks - Perks include student discounts on HANE online herbal courses, workshops, and more.

  • Other great features include “Hand-Picked” by HANE, a collection of HANE’s favorite resources and resource reviews, a discussion forum, and hidden gems throughout the site like polls and virtual suggestion boxes.

Presented in a way that is visually stunning, easily accessible, and all at your fingertips, The Herbarium is an invaluable resource to students, educators, practiced herbalists.

The Herbarium hosts content from an ongoing list of contributors, offering carefully gathered research and wisdom from years of herbalism practice. Some of these contributors include Marlene Adelmann, Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa, Juliet Blankespoor, Bevin Clare, Phyllis Light, Brittany Nickerson, Judith Sumner, Rachel Ross, Kerry Hughes and Jane Metzger.

This membership program is an extension of HANE’s successful Introductory and Intermediate Online Herbal Courses and workshops. With over one thousand students graduated from HANE’s online programs and ready to learn more, the need for The Herbarium is a reflection of the reentry of herbal-based studies to the mainstream. “It was evident that we needed a place for our graduates and readers to continue their studies. The Herbarium is that place,” says Marlene Adelmann, Founder of HANE. Natural remedies, buying locally, and thinking critically about what we put in our bodies are all part of our history and part of herbal health and wellness, and more people are returning to this path each day.

The annual membership fee for joining The Herbarium is $45.
