32nd Anniversary Celebration
New England Women's Herbal Conference
August 23 - 25, 2019
Held at beautiful Camp Wicosuta on New Found Lake, New Hampshire
Each year, for the past 31 years the New England Women’s Herbal Conference has brought together women herbalists, healers, and plant lovers to share their wisdom of the herbs and natural healing. Though the emphasis at the Women’s Herbal Conference is on women’s health, healing, and well being, the NEWHC is far more than an educational event. It is a joyful celebration of women spirit and women’s wisdom, as well as a special time of honoring the Earth and her plant rich being.
Camp Wicosuta has been a girls' camp for over 90 years and was founded by a visionary woman to foster leadership skills in young woman. The camp provides excellent facilities, indoor lodging, camping, and a lovely sandy beach on the lake for swimming and enjoying the sun and water.
