The ongoing work of Albuquerque Herbalism is dedicated to the loving memory of Bert Norgorden.  Bert’s love of plants, both as subjects of scientific research and as beings of exceptional beauty, made him one of the Albuquerque area’s most accomplished herbalists.  His powerful plant medicine, his inspiring teachings, and his alluring plant portraits will be forever missed.
