The first Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference, to be held from June 29 to July 1, at The Christine Center, in Willard, Wisconsin, is accepting registrations. The weekend features keynote speakers Susun Weed and Isla Burgess, both herbal intensive leaders, as well as a diverse array of workshops and plant walks, led by Midwest herbalists and Earth-based speakers.
Centered in the Wise Woman tradition, the Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference provides a gathering space to focus on Earth-centered healing, nourishment and the plants that grow around us—weaving ourselves, our families and our communities back into the dynamic spiral of health.
Weed is an American herbalist and director of the Wise Woman Center, in New York State. She is known for her writing and teaching of what she describes as the “Wise Woman Way”
of herbalism. Weed is the author of the Wise Woman Herbal series. Burgess is director of the International College of Herbal Medicine, in New Zealand.
Sponsorships are available at three levels: Chickweed ($250), with website and collateral acknowledgement and networking table space; Motherwort ($500), which adds one conference registration with camping space and meals; and Mugwort ($1,000), adding an additional registration and camping space.
