New England Women's Herbal Conference
August 24–26, 2018
Update: The NE WHC is now full for 2018. We encourage you to place your name on the wait-list if you are interested in attending!
IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Conference Registration includes all workshops, activities, entertainment, and herb walks except for the Intensive Workshops, which are an additional $35 for each Intensive. You may add those to your cart below. Please note; a few of the hands on craft type of activities may charge a small material fee (between $5 – $10) payable to the teacher at the class. Material fees when requested are noted on the WHC schedule and are payable to the teacher. Meals must be purchased separately.
LODGING & MEALS
Camping is FREE and included in the cost of Registration. If camping, you must bring your own camping gear including a waterproof tent, ground cloth, sleeping bags, pads, flashlight etc. Be sure that your tent is waterproof! Portapotties are provided for campers (sorry no indoor toilet facilities) and limited indoor shower facilities. Please note; camping is fun, but rustic. You must be prepared to bring what you need to be comfortable for the weekend. Personal campfires and campstoves are not permitted. There is no additional charge for camping.
We also offer Lodging in Camp Wicosuta Bunkhouses; for $65 per person. This can be added to your cart below—hurry, space is limited and this fills up fast!
Off Site Lodging is another option. If you opt for more comfort and privacy, you might prefer to stay in one of the lovely B & B™s and hotels in the area. The WHC is held in the beautiful Lakes Region of NH, and there are lots of lodging options in the area. We recommend Coppertoppe Inn. For additional lodging options click here.
Meal Packages & Food Vendors Once again we are offering our Participants a choice of purchasing a Meal Package or purchasing individual meals from Food Vendors. Both options offered a good variety of choices and wholesome delicious meals that satisfy most of our participant’s needs and wide range of food needs. We think it’s the best plan ever and are excited to see it working, thanks to your help. Learn more about food options here.
ELDERS, TEENS & CHILDREN
Kids Camp provides the opportunity for children age 5 to 12 to attend the NE Women’s Herbal Conference and to have a ‘camp of their own’. For more information about Kid’s Camp and bringing your children with you, please click here
Children (ages 5–12) includes Kid’s Camp and camping. ($175)
We are so sorry to anyone who was still hoping to bring their older children , that that the children’s spaces are now full and we are no longer able to take children’s reservations. We love to have the children at the conference ~ they add so much joy and laughter ~ and are glad to be able to provide a special program for them. Please note, the decision to bring your children age 5 to 12 without registering them for Kids Camp is not an option. Also, because it adds so much confusion to the registration process, we are unable to register you based on whether or not there will be an opening at a later date for your child. You will need to decide now whether you wish to attend the NE WHC without your child. We sincerely hope you can make other arrangements for child care so that you can attend this year.
Children 4 years and younger are welcome to attend the NE WHC at no charge, but no childcare is available. The ‘little one’s’ are welcome to attend class with you, however, if they become fussy out of courtesy to others, please step away from the class. Please bring snack items for your child, change of clothes, and diapers if necessary.

Gail Ulrich Memorial Scholarship
There are limited number of partial scholarships available to help those in financial need who would like to attend the NE Women’s Herbal Conference. Scholarships are for $100 and are used to help offset the tuition costs. In order to create as many scholarships and other discounted registration positions as possible, we ask that individuals applying for scholarships don’t apply for work-study positions. If you have an absolute need for both, then call and let us know and we’ll consider your situation. We want everyone who wishes to attend, to be able to come to these wonderful herbal events, as well as making sure that the event's expenses are covered. Thank you for your understanding!
