Over a thousand participants will gather to celebrate the women’s herbal conference 15th anniversary
The Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference began 15 years ago with 200 women studying herbal and other natural tools in the Wise Woman Tradition to support physical and emotional health. This year organizers expect over a thousand women of all ages and backgrounds to gather on October 11-13 at Kanuga outside of Hendersonville, NC — making it the most popular and vibrant herbal event in the country.
Announcing the 2019 conference class schedule!
|The 2019 Class Schedule is hot off the press, and we’re very excited about all of the juicy classes in the lineup this year! The program addresses a myriad of herbal and other natural tools in the Wise Women Tradition to support physical and emotional health for women.
|Returning to Kanuga Conference & Retreat Center
|Conference participants raved about the venue change to Kanuga last year, and we are delighted to be returning this fall!
“I came for my fifth year. I adored the new venue!”
“The venue was gorgeous and had great accommodations.”
“Phenomenal! A uniquely beautiful place to come together with so many like minded/hearted people.”
Kanuga spans the shores of the pristine 30-acre Kanuga Lake and miles of biodiverse hiking trails through woodlands to wetlands. Appreciating our focus on ecological stewardship and empowerment for a diverse group of women and girls, Kanuga is eager to welcome back our wise woman web.
Kanuga offers a variety of options to meet our participants’ desires for comfortable, private, and accessible accommodations. From camping and bunkbeds in lodges, to charming cottages and rooms in the Kanuga Lake Inn, there’s something for everyone.
For women who are interested in a private bedroom, we are excited to expand our offerings this year to include private rooms in cottages. These historic cottages are centrally located and full of charm!
Each cottage features a screened porch, living room with fireplace, a kitchenette with sink and small fridge, and 2-6 bedrooms. Each bedroom includes two twin beds and a private attached bathroom.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
