Kanuga Conference & Retreat Center
Thinking of making the journey to gather with the herbal women’s community that comes together to learn, celebrate, and connect each fall? Women travel to this wise women herbal conference from both coasts of the country—and everywhere in between—to join the unique sisterhood that is growing in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Just 30 minutes from the Asheville airport, the conference is placed within a region known for beauty and culture, both historic and progressive. While you’re in the area, consider staying at least one more night nearby and visiting the Malaprop’s Bookstore in downtown Asheville, hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway, or dancing to live mountain music at the Old Farmer’s Ball.
Nestled on 1,400 peaceful acres in the mountains south of Asheville, just outside the charming town of Hendersonville, our venue is a destination in itself! Amid mountain vistas, crisp streams and towering pines, Kanuga Conference & Retreat Center is flanked by two youth camps at the pristine 30-acre Kanuga Lake. With 20 miles of biodiverse hiking trails through woodlands to wetlands, Kanuga is an exceptional site steeped in natural beauty. Appreciating our focus on ecological stewardship and empowerment for a diverse group of women and girls, Kanuga eagerly welcomes our group of female herbalists.
Kanuga provides us weekend access to their entire facilities—on all three campuses—including a wide range of housing options from economical cabin bunk beds and camping, to charming cottages and hotel-style rooms in their Kanuga Lake Inn. The variety of accommodations provides something for everyone.
We hope you will join us co-create the beauty, harmony, sweetness, and powerful love for the land.
