We are excited to announce that Ann Armbrecht of the Sustainable Herbs Project and producer of the film Numen will be giving one of the keynote presentations.  Ann will film her presentation shortly before the conference in her home state of Vermont and will send it to us to play at the conference.
Ann will introduce the Sustainable Herbs Project and how it is designed to help the herb farming community in general.  The SHP is sooo relevant to our conference and the herbal community.  I highly recommend everyone watch the following 3 short youtubes. A nice biography of Ann is in Mother Earth News.

We recommend everyone watch Ann’s 3-minute introductory clip to SHP before the conference.

You can look at the trailer for the Numen film.
7 minutes video on the Business of Herbs.
