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!
