About Us

The Herb Society of Manitoba was formed in 1995 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers interested in educating the public about herbs and promoting the use of herbs in everyday life. In 1996, a Constitution was written, a Mission Statement formulated, and the Society officially began its work.

Our meetings are generally held the 3rd Monday of each month and start at 7:00 p.m. at the Canadian Mennonite University South Campus in Winnipeg, Manitoba. For more information on upcoming speakers, please visit the Programming page.

General Meetings are open to the public, however, there is a $5.00 charge for guests to attend. Individual memberships are $25.00/year (Canadian funds).

Mission Statement

The Herb Society of Manitoba is dedicated to promoting knowledge, use and enjoyment of herbs through education, programs, research and sharing the experience of its members with the community.

Nancy Hall
Nancy Hall grew up a wild child in the boreal forest of northwestern Ontario and studied Aromatherapy and Herbalism in the backwoods of Haida Gwaii, BC and Whiteshell Provincial Park, MB. Traveling extensively throughout Canada to further her exposure to the diversity of forest and flora, before settling in Winnipeg in 2004 to establish Hollow Reed Holistic, an urban apothecary and herbal dispensary. At Hollow Reed, Nancy was available to guide clients, customers and plant people galore to finding remedies of all kinds. She produced an extensive line of exceptional body products and elixirs in her outstanding cafe. In 2015, she was invited to present her Art of Aromatherapy at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, leading a workshop in aromatic and gemstone elixir crafting. For twenty years Nancy has offered interesting and entertaining workshops in the area of wholistic lifestyle, and has been featured in many local publications, radio and tv and educational institutions. Nancy's practice stepped out of retail and turned inward in 2020, when she gained training and insight into the workings of the mind through training in Hypnotherapy and Ho'oponopono. She offers 1:1 therapy and coaching sessions in person and online.

Awaken Your Third Nostril
In the upcoming workshop at the Herb Society of Manitoba, an interactive elixir crafting will allow participants to get their senses fully involved. Nancy is renowned in the community as a 'potionista', supplying essential oils, plant spirit medicines and natural body products through her forthcoming 'Ace of Drops.'
