Northwest Herbal Faire List of Past Presenters
Compilation by Michael Pilarski. This is just my starting list. Please send nominations for people to add to this list. Where are other published lists?
Please note that the title for the first 10 events was Northwest Herbal Faire. We switched to Northwest Herbal Fair in 2011 for a number of reasons.
The affiliations given are those at the time of that herbal fair, where known.
Not all these NWHF presenters are herbalists. Some are with different companies now. Some are retired. This is just a historical record. Let me know of anyone left out who should be on this list.
