A Wonderful Weekend at the New England Women's Herb Conference
photo by Susan Leiken
I've just gotten home from a wonderful weekend at the New England Women's Herb Conference. This was the 24th annual conference, organized by Rosemary Gladstar and an amazing group of women. I've been 6 or 8 times, and it's always fabulous. More than 500 women gathered at a camp outside of Hebron, NH. I tended my booth (shown here), took several classes, and had too many stimulating conversations to count. I even managed to take a nap in the grass. And, my Raspberry Beret cordial won an award! You can see that the tester bottle for that one has been dipped into quite a few times... it's the third bottle from the right, on the table in front of me. This photo was taken on Sunday morning - I was already sold out of quite a few things, and by the end of the morning I had none of the beautiful sundresses (which I dyed with Lac resin) either. And I forgot to save one for myself, so I'll be setting up another dye pot soon...
