The 12th annual Midwest Women's Herbal Conference: Germinating Regenerative Wisdom, will be held in-person, from May 26 through 28, at Camp Helen Brachman, in Almond, Wisconsin. Celebrating 12 years of women gathering in the Wise Woman Tradition, this year’s keynote speakers are Robin Rose Bennett, Linda Black Elk and Reverend Judith Laxer, with opening and closing ceremonies led by Venice Williams. 

The conference offers more than 60 workshops and plant walks focused on transforming our  relationship to herbs, plants, trees, mushrooms and the Earth. This is an opportunity to be nourished, enjoy local and traditionally prepared food, pre-conference immersions and a venue of more than 200 acres in central Wisconsin. The event offers a unique experience for the 400-plus women, children and teens expected to attend in a village environment.
