Aug 29, 2014 07:55AM
The fourth annual MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference will be held October 4 and 5 in Kempton. “The conference provides a forum for women to convene, inspire and be inspired to use natural methods of healing with their children, families or clients,” states festival founder/organizer Charis Lindrooth, of Red Earth Farm. Nearly doubling its attendance since 2011, the conference offers women opportunities to network and share sustainable business practices, healing methods and ideas.
Rosemary Gladstar, internationally acclaimed herbalist, author and founder of the International Herb Symposium and United Plant Savers, will deliver a keynote address about health freedom rights and preserving herbal traditions on Saturday morning and will give an evening talk Saturday night.
More than 15 workshops will explore women’s health, herbal medicine, gardening and plant identification. Activities include herb walks, yoga, herbal remedy preparation, singing and dancing. Local vendors will offer lunch and dinner, featuring teas, fair trade coffee, vegan and gluten-free alternatives. A kids’ camp program for children ages 3 to 12 runs during class and keynote hours. Suzanna Stone will lead a drum circle as the evening’s entertainment.
