Feedback from HerbFest 2016:

‘It was so well organised, yet very relaxed – just the right pace and tone – very uplifting and enlightening experience.’ Julie
‘What a great weekend at HerbFest in Monte Mariposa in Portugal. Fantastic speakers, I have met some new wonderful people and learned more about herbs and also about Portuguese and Spanish traditions and herbal teachings. Wow, what a worthwhile trip!’ Gemma
‘Oh my, what a wonderful wonderful place Monte Mariposa is! Thanks Annie & Beatriz and all who were involved in Herbfest this year….What a wonderful bunch of supportive, knowledgeable people! The location was out of this world with its wild Borage, Lavender, Wild carrot and oh so much more, the bees were deafening and the whole thing as you can tell has blown me away. That’s without mentioning the haunting and first class local Fado music which was the entertainment on Saturday eve. I take all of this away with me and have everything crossed that we can hold it again here next year. Anyone that didn’t manage to go, try for next year, you won’t regret it!’ Ashlie
