Spring Herbal Conference
May 28, 29 & 30, 2021 •  Almond, WI 
Mycelium Mysteries
Fall 2021 •  Almond, WI 
Since our 3rd conference in June 2014, the Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference has been held at Camp Helen Brachman. Our Fall Mushroom Conference has also historically been held at the camp. This year, both conferences moved online to help protect public health.
In 2021, the events will return to the camp, which is part of COA Youth & Family Services. It is located in Almond, a small community in central Wisconsin. The location offers 200 acres of plant walks, a quiet lake for swimming, meals by Dani Lind of Rooted Spoon Catering, a female camp director who supports the mission of the conference, and rustic accommodations. ​​
