The eighth annual Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference, to be held from May 31 through June 2 in Almond, Wisconsin, will include transformation and plant medicine as women from all over the world gather to rekindle the wild within or deepen their knowledge of plants. Participants will walk away from this time together in the woods feeling more empowered and inspired.

There will be workshops, plant walks and a kids’ camp, as well as teen herbal camps, red tent space, fire circles, singing circles, delicious locally sourced farm to table meals and more.

Participants will enjoy plant walks and workshops on topics that include herbs for family health, wild edibles, fermentation, permaculture, movement, herbal wisdom, wise woman ways and much more.

Williams is executive director of Alice’s Garden Urban Farm, in Milwaukee. Hernandez, a registered herbalist, is executive director of the American Herbalists Guild. Weed is an author and voice of the Wise Woman Tradition.
