Thinking of making the journey to gather with the herbal women’s community that comes together to learn, celebrate, and connect here 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.
Our venue at Lake Eden, surrounded by the ancient Appalachian Mountains, is a destination in itself. The magical reflecting waters, framed against the autumn colors of the rolling hills, provide a powerful and heart-opening opportunity for connection with nature--whether you're sunbathing on the lawn by the lake, enjoying an outdoor dance class, or gathering around the fire in the cool autumn evening. And all day, every day, seasoned herbalists lead plants walks through the fields and forests, to identify and explore wild edible and medicinal plants found right here on the grounds.
Just minutes from Asheville, NC, and Black Mountain, NC, the conference is placed within a region known for beauty and culture, both historic and progressive. While you’re in the area, consider staying a night nearby and visiting the Malaprop’s Bookstore or the aSHEville Museum in downtown Asheville, hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway, or dancing to live mountain music at the Old Farmer’s Ball.
The camp accommodates participants in a variety of shared cabins, bunkhouses, and lodge rooms, as well as camping. Learn all about lodging options.
Once you’ve set foot on the land at Lake Eden, your heart will open to the magic of the lake, the plants, and the mountains. As well as your sisters, and yourself!
