Description: If you love herbs, if you enjoy relaxing in a beautiful mountain setting, if you want to learn how to use, grow, and make herbal products, mark your calendar now for this unique annual conference. More information will be posted as it becomes available at: http://www.ncherbassociation.org/

Tucked into the northwest corner of North Carolina between Banner Elk and Boone, the Valle Crucis Conference Center has been home to Wild Herb Weekend since the second conference. Here are some helpful tips from veteran attendees, as well as answers to our most frequently asked questions.
  • The conference takes place in several buildings. Most buildings are fairly close together, but it is possible to drive. Parking is limited and some roads are one-way, so we ask that you only drive if you truly need to. 
  • The weather is usually delightfully cool, but if the forecast looks hot or you are sensitive to heat, you might want to bring an extra fan along. Buildings are not air conditioned. 
  • All lodgings include beds, linens, and towels. 
  • You may choose your roommate(s) with advanced notice! 
  • Room capacity ranges from two through dorm style. While we will do our best to accommodate room/building requests, we cannot guarantee these. Please keep in mind this is an old establishment. There may be "moldy" odor in some areas. If you have health sensitivity to moldy odors, please let us know this when you register to attend WHW, as we may not be able to switch rooms once the Conference starts.  
  • Cell phones generally work at the conference center - but you might wish they didn't! 
  • Remember to budget for the raffle and vendors!
