HerbFest 2019 at Dartington Hall, Devon

Friday 17th – Sunday 19th May 2019


After fantastic feedback from delegates last year we are so excited to be returning to Dartington Hall this year for Herbfest 2019. 

This herbal conference for herbalists and herbal enthusiasts will include lectures, practical workshops and foraging walks, yoga, story-telling, music and much more. With brilliant speakers and teachers from a diverse background we hope there will be something for everyone!

I set up HerbFest to spread the love and wisdom of herbs and plants that I have acquired over the years from the fantastic teachers I have been lucky enough to have met. I am so happy it has been running for 13 years and I hope you will be able to join us and enjoy this herbal weekend.

Tickets are all inclusive of accommodation, all meals, full access to all the talks and workshops, plus yoga sessions and the entertainment in the evening. There are tickets for every budget from luxurious single bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (£425) to student style rooms with shared bathrooms (£330). For those lucky people who live close to the venue we are also selling non-residential tickets (£255). Please visit www.herbfest.co.uk for more information and to book your ticket.

We hope to see you there!

Ayurvedic Apprenticeship

This course runs over four weekends on Saturdays and Sundays: 30-31st March, 8-9th June, 6-7th July, 28-29th September 2019

Anne is offering a unique course over 4 weekends during 2018 devised for herb lovers, students and practitioners alike.

The course will be held at Anne’s home in the Cotswolds, where she has a herb garden with over 150 medicinal plants, laid out in a spiral that represents a journey through life expresses through herbs. Please email office@annemcintyre.com or call 01451 810096 for more information.
