The North Carolina Herb Association holds an amazing little conference every year. This is one I NEVER miss. I would love to have you join us. The event is held at the Valle Crucis Conference Center in Valle Crucis, NC. This is in the high country near Boone. The conference center is an old mission with historic old buildings sprinkled up. The lodging is very clean but a bit rustic. The old lodge, shown above, has single and double rooms with shared baths. There are several houses with single and double rooms and shared baths. The Annex has double rooms and a few rooms with multiple beds. There is no air conditioning but I think most all rooms have ceiling fans. Those of us in the know also bring extra fans just in case.
We always have an energetic group of interns there to help vendors set-up and break down, to set up classrooms and assist teachers, to run the raffle, and just be all round helpful. As an organization, we love that we are able to help budding herbalists attend this conference and give them an opportunity to mingle with great herbalists.
Check out these great classes that will be offered this year: Class Descriptions. There are plant walks and many of the classes are hands-on. There is something for everyone, from the novice, to the herb enthusiast, to the practicing herbalist, and the herb business person.
There is also a herbal food contest, so put on your apron and set out to impress us. Maybe your recipe will make it into our next cookbook.
Register soon on the NC Herb Association WHW page and join us for a relaxing, fun-filled weekend.
