“If you can only make it to one herb conference next year, this should be the one! Profound, inspiring, multi-cultural, grass roots, and SO much fun!! We’ll see you there!” -Julie, Humboldt Herbals
Cabins, rooms and camping with outlets must be purchased direct from Mormon Lake Lodge, and the earlier you reserve a space, the more likely you are to be sure of getting the accommodations you want. For Cabin info go to the:
Mormon Lake Lodging Web Page
When registering, be sure to tell them you are with TWHC so that you get the best deal and are housed with the rest of our community.
While you can bring your own food, Mormon Lake Lodge will also be catering meals to our specifications including wild game, fresh vegetables, gluten free fare and more. Meal tickets will not be sold until Spring, so we suggest you purchasing your Conference Tickets and Lodging before then.
“We see this conference as the weaving of a beautiful tapestry where the strength of the warp and the possibilities of the weft can come together to form new and beautiful patterns not previously possible, based on the wise and thoughtful integration of diverse traditions of herbalism, healing and community. Perhaps most importantly it feels like a conference for truly inspired and serious herbal folk that want to come away not just having had a good time, but to come away feeling reinvigorated in their herbal pursuits and practices and having learned valuable skills that are immediately applicable to deepening herbal skill and knowledge. This conference seemed to offer enough for beginning students to feel both inspired and appropriately overwhelmed as well as an abundance of learning opportunities for intermediate and advanced students as well. What a great balance!”
–Hanna Jordan & Chris Smaka, School of Traditional Western Herbalism
