Event Details:

5th Annual Maine Herbalist Gathering
Saturday, October 5th 9am-5pm
Merryspring Nature Center
http://www.merryspring.org/
Camden, ME

Full Schedule and class descriptions available on our website in the blog and news section.

Merryspring has one indoor classroom space, a gazebo, and we will have additional tent spaces to have classes under. It is open to the public and located right off Route One with ample trails to walk on as well as gardens to explore.

There is no camping onsite, but local camping can be found at Camden Hills State Park nearby. We encourage you to post on the event's facebook wall to see if a fellow herbalist in the area may have camping and/or bedspace available to you.

Tickets

In an attempt to increase accessibility we have opted to use a sliding scale ticketing model. Prices range from $45 to $75. Please select the highest level you can afford. By choosing a higher tier you are supporting a lower income attendee.

All folks Indigenous to North America are welcome to join us at no cost. Please select the Indigenous Attendee ticket so we have an accurate number for our lunch count.

Babies in arms are free. We will have kids programing this year, and there are limited number of kids tickets available. All children must have a kid's ticket in order to attend - this includes the kids of our teachers & presenters. Thank you!
