ACHS President Dorene Petersen Featured in How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Herb and Herbal Plant Business

We're proud to announce, our College President, Dorene Petersen, has a featured interview in the new book How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Herb and Herbal Plant Business!!

America is going local. Entrepreneur Media, Inc., listed locally grown produce and products as one of the top five trends that will thrive in 2010.

This “buy local” effect has swept the nation due to the farmers’ market movement; there are about 5,000 farmers’ markets in the country that have contributed to five percent of the industry’s annual growth, according to the Department of Agriculture. The USDA recently launched the “Know Your Famer, Know Your Food” campaign in an effort to bridge the gap between where food is grown and how it ends up on your plate.

So, how do you learn more about the health benefits of herbs and locally grown produce? Start with How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Herb and Herbal Plant Business released by Atlantic Publishing Group in Spring 2011 and featuring an interview with ACHS President Dorene Petersen. Plow the intricacies of starting your own business and the basics of herbs and herbal plant growth, learn about the importance of high-quality herbal education, and gain practical suggestions for how to prioritize education, sustainable practices, and customer needs.

How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Herb and Herbal Plant Business (ISBN# 9781601383297) is available through the ACHS Apothecary Shoppe College Store (5940 SW Hood Ave., Portland OR 97239) at www.apothecary-shoppe.com or (503) 244-0726.

Very cool. Thanks for this post. I will definitely read the interview.

It's true that people are "going local" as well - which is a very good thing! ;)
