Join us for a gathering of the feminine; with a wide spectrum of acclaimed herbalists and each-based speakers, plant walks, and topics including herbs for family health, wild edibles, fermentation, permaculture, movement, herbal wisdom, wise woman ways and much more!

Learn from world-changing thinkers and movers in the world of women’s wisdom and herbalism. 


The 2020 Conference will be our ninth year as we gather together at Camp Helen Brachman, in Almond, WI (two hours from Milwaukee, and Madison; near Steven’s Point) with 400 women, teens and children. 


Along with the herbal education and personal growth workshops, women enjoy dance and body movement opportunities, singing, and nature walks. The village communes together around nourishing, mostly organic meals, swimming and enjoying the view of beautiful Pickerel Lake, in the heart of the camp, and soaking in the evening campfire. Whether tent camping or residing in the rustic cabins, women enjoy the natural beauty around the camp, with enough space to join a group or take a quiet walk alone. 


Beginning with a welcoming opening ceremony, bringing together the group intentions, each personal journey continues while held in the trusting and mysterious arms of nature. 

World-changing thinkers and movers in the world of women’s wisdom and herbalism. 


Herbal education and personal growth workshops, dance and body movement opportunities, singing and nature walks.
