Monographs are back! We have been working in Canva to create templates for Coordinators, and have also created a few new templates we will be sharing with readers and members! Our new monograph template is printable with key facts about each herb we will feature, and includes places for you to write your own notes, sketch the plant, and add some of your own thoughts and input into the monograph - perfect for a binder that you can add to monthly as new monographs come out.

Hi! My name is Connor Anastasia Denton and I am the Monograph Editor here at Herbalists Without Borders. I am currently 24 years old and pursuing a Master’s of Science in Herbal Medicine. I enjoy going the gym, gardening, taking care of my indoor houseplant collection (over 35 different species), reading, painting, graphic design, and playing with my three cats. I joined the HWB in March 2022 to participate in the active efforts of reestablishing a community bond rooted in plants. I believe plants have the ability to teach us about where we come from, who we are, who we want to be, but most importantly, they have the power to bring people together in times of need.
The Herbal Academy has graciously donated 10 scholarships for their Mastering Herbal Formulation Course. The Herbal Academy aims to make herbal educational programming accessible and affordable to everyone, and we wholeheartedly appreciate this gift.
We are sharing these opportunities for HWB Members all year. HWB has assembled an HWB Scholarship Application Review Committee to review applicants and select the winners. These scholarship opportunities will be launched one at a time (Spring, Summer and Fall), will have an application and a review committee that awards the scholarship winners, and codes will be provided for registration to those scholarship winners to register.
The second scholarship round is for the Mastering Herbal Formulation Course. Scholarship applications are due by June 15. Scholarship winners will be announced by the first of July.
There are 10 scholarships available this round, and 2 are earmarked for HWB Member Coordinators, and 8 to general HWB Members, to help those serving their community have access to more tools and knowledge to better do this work. HWB members at any level can apply.
We have been working hard to expand our member benefits and hope to continue to partner with schools and businesses in order to bring even more opportunities your way in the future.
Education is in our mission and vision, and is an important part of bringing herbal health access to all communities globally.
Scholarships are open to all HWB members of any level. Visit the member portal to access the scholarship information and application link!
We have been hard at work preparing to launch a new webinar and podcast series that targets the topics our members and Coordinators want. Each webinar will launch in the member portal with a full intensive blog post that includes handouts, downloadables, links to HWB resources, toolkits, workbooks, and more.
While most webinars will be in the member portal area, we plan to also launch podcasts to the public side as well, available to all.
Our first webinar and podcast of the 2022 season is Be Ready: Herbal Preparedness. Coming soon!
All of the work HWB does requires the time and dedication of volunteers. A bit thank you to our new volunteer Webinar and Podcast Producer, Jennifer Sutherland Cline, our new volunteer Webinar & Podcast Social Media and Content support person, Jessica Thomas, and of course our volunteer Assistant Director Jocelyn Perez Blanco, who is working on presenting in this new series with Denise. So, we are super excited to share more as we have it ready to go live!
HWB has been working hard to upgrade to a new donation and membership management system that is secure, available in most countries, offers multiple payment methods (including recurring monthly, one time annual, and auto renew annual), and specializes in nonprofits. We are happy to introduce our new membership and donation platform, Donorbox. Donorbox will allow members to manage their own dues via single dues payment, recurring monthly payments, or annual recurring payments. Donorbox also allows for honorariums and donations in memory of.
With the launch of the new platform, we are also upgrading to a whole new set of expanded membership levels. We have heard from many that they would like to support HWB at a bigger level, and by offering Bundled Memberships at Levels 2-4 for Nonprofit, Business, and Schools, groups can choose to upgrade their membership to get more great benefits, offer bundles of memberships to staff, faculty, or students under their membership umbrella, and support HWB as well. See all of the membership
We are keeping the sliding scale SOLO memberships, including Individual, Nonprofit, and Business, for those that are solo entrepreneurs and only need the 1 single membership. Each SOLO membership has a sliding scale for accessibility.
For those unable to utilize the recommended sliding scale at this time due to their financial need, we also offer a sliding scale financial need level membership, and for those needing significant support, the opportunity to apply for full financial need membership scholarships.
Interested in donating to our financial need scholarship program? Make a donation here, and type "Financial Need Scholarship Program" in the "write us a comment" area.
See a full screen view of the above chart, for quick reference of all the membership levels and benefits.
A big welcome to all of our new members. As a small, volunteer-driven nonprofit, memberships are what makes our programs and work possible and keeps us going. THANK YOU!
A big thank you to Botanica 2022, for donating sponsor space to HWB so that we can share our work, raise awareness of those on the ground and in their communities, and, share more about the importance of herbalism, aromatherapy, wellness, and other holistic modalities in supporting those who have experienced (and are living through) trauma. Our work is about the plants, but it is also about the people, and the tools we have to help support those we serve.
