2018 Northwest Herb Symposium
Botanicals at the Beach
We couldn't be more excited for registration opening for “Botanicals at the Beach,” the 2018 Northwest Herb Symposium!! The weekend of August 23rd through the 26th will feature world-class educational workshops by both national and regional teachers in the fields of botany and natural medicine including: Paul Bergner, Mary Bove, Chanchal Cabrera, Rosalee de la Forêt, Ryan Drum, EagleSong Gardener, Christopher Hobbs, Denise Joy, Julie Charette Nunn, Suzanne Tabert and Netta Zeberoff.
Learning opportunities will include educational workshop tracks for budding herbalists, advanced students and practitioners alike. These workshops will be a mix of hands-on medicine making, traditional classroom lecture style and informative herb walks. This symposium is a unique opportunity that both inspires and enlightens individuals new to herbalism as well as fosters a deeper depth of understanding of advanced plant applications for practicing herbalists.
Intensive classes will include Paul Bergner on "Botanicals, Biofilms and Chronic Infection," Mary Bove with "Restoring Healthy Day/Night Adrenal Circadian Cycles with Botanicals," EagleSong Gardener teaching "Fermentation: Cultivating the Wild," and Christopher Hobbs sharing wisdom of "Mushroom Medicine: Latest News, Product Controversies & Uses." Lodging and meal plans are available and encouraged when you register.
A beautiful harmony of both science and folklore will enhance your knowledge of the beneficial properties of plants (and fungi), as well as give you an opportunity to play a role in the continuation of this vital path of natural healing for ourselves, our friends and family, and our entire community. It will be more than a learning experience, it will be a gathering in celebration of green living and botanical wisdom!
Early registration discount is available until May 15th! Also, you save extra on registration if you are a college student, but everyone is invited and encouraged to this wonderful union! For more information on Botanicals at the Beach, please feel free to visit the website.
