You’re invited to the 2015 Maine Herbalist Gathering at Viles Arboretum in Augusta on October 17 from 9am-5pm.
Let’s build a strong web to connect herbalists living, growing and practicing in Maine!
This year’s event is limited to 50 participants so that we can build deeper connections and shape a vision of what a second Maine Herbalist Gathering might become.
There will be an opening and closing circle, ample time for lunch, socializing and visioning, as well as 3 slots for hour long presentations and 6 slots for lightning talks (5-7 minutes each on topics of interest to herbalists, such as case studies, single herbs, plant spirit connections, flower essences, visions for the future of herbalism, etc.).
We hope that you might submit a proposal to present either an hour long talk or a lightning talk. Share your passions with us! We are especially interested in intermediate to advanced topics that would be useful to practicing herbalists.
Deadline for proposals: June 15
Submit proposals in a 1 page pdf format. Include your name, business, email, address, and phone number along with a title, short description and any special needs you have for your talk. Note that we may not be able to accommodate all requests for equipment/media/etc.
Notification of participation: July 15
Send proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
