Join us for a weekend of herbal discovery at Mt. Cheaha State Park, the highest point in Alabama
Come and learn from a great variety of speakers such as Matt St.John, Darryl Patton, Maggie Baker Conklin, Suzanne Shires and other great herbal educators. With hands-on intensives, lectures, wild food tastings and herb walks, you will be sure to have  a great time reconnecting with nature and learning about the Roots of Natural Medicine. 

Registration begins promptly at 8:30 Friday morning and is open until 10:00. We will then go into a short general session until 10:30 and classes will begin. A schedule will be posted in the main conference hall. The last class on Friday and Saturday will start at 2 pm for 2 hour classes and 3 pm for 1 hr classes. Classes on Saturday and Sunday will begin at 9 am.


The Governor has stated that the mask mandate for the state of Alabama will expire on April 9th, 2021. Therefore, masks will then not be required and it will be up to the individual as to whether or not they choose to wear a mask. Please be respectful of others and if you have ANY symptoms of covid, the common cold or anything resembling a respiratory issues, stay home and you will receive credit towards the next conference.

All activities end by 4 p.m. each day but there will be an extra session or two offered in the evening by a couple of the speakers who have volunteered to do so.


The weather should be beautiful at Cheaha with decent chances of rain and the typical Alabama heat not being as bad due to the altitude.

There will be vegetarian, gluten-free and low carb options available at each meal time. Freshly-baked cookies, muffins , herbal teas and coffee will be available for self-serve all weekend.

There will be a bucket set out for "Love Offerings" should anyone wish to contribute towards the cost of the food/paper goods but all are welcome to enjoy the food and snacks provided without any obligation.


I look forward to seeing you there. Bring a notebook/pen as we have a lot of presenters and there will be much information given. I am working on video taping all of the presentations and will offer a virtual conference soon for those who are unable to attend our annual conference.


See you there!
