Deep South Herbal Conference 

"Return To The Roots of Natural Health"

Join us for a weekend of herbal discovery at Historic Moon Lake Village, high atop Lookout Mounain in the Southern Appalachians. Located in the picturesque town of Mentone, on historic Lookout Mountain, our new location offers an amazing variety of places to hike and enjoy nature in a laid back environment. 
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 8:00 Friday morning and is open until 9:00. We will then go into a short general session  and classes will begin. A schedule will be posted in the main conference hall.  All classes at this conference will consist of intensives and last between 2 - 3 hours. Intensives on Saturday will begin after the general session on Saturday. We will do our best as usual to arrange the schedule so participants can attend as many if not all intensives.
Masks are not 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. On Saturday, we are planning on having music in the amphitheater. If you are musically inclined, feel free to bring your instrument and talent!
Boxed lunches will be available for a nominal fee but all meals and lodging are the responsibility of the participants.
October weather should be beautiful in Mentone with decent chances of rain and the typical Alabama heat not being as bad due to the altitude.
Meals: Mentone has several nice places to eat and we will also offer light pick-uo foods and beverages.   A wild food meal will be offered including several wild foraged foods such as Ramps, Nettles, Mushrooms etc.....
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!
