To learn about this year’s gathering check our homepage.
The Maine Herbal Gathering centers around classes and workshops for anyone from the plant curious to advanced herbal practitioners. We hope to facilitate new and lasting connections within the Maine herbal community, and create space to honor the wisdom of plants.
Our gathering includes collaborative workshops, hands-on skill sharing, nourishing organic food, plant walks, and more. The event is organized by an ever-evolving group of passionate Maine herb loving people. We are in need of sustaining admin support and looking for folks who want to take on multi-year admin roles that are around 100 hours per year to help support and shape the future of the gathering. We also look for annual support in the form of organizing, volunteering day of and other roles as well. Please contact us if you would like to get involved.
The Maine Herbal Gathering is an annual event where folks can learn about plants and herbal medicine through classes, workshops, and community connection. All are welcome. This gathering strives to be an inclusive space for people of all genders, races, abilities, orientations, ages, and income levels. We humbly honor the Wabanaki people, of past and present, who are the original protectors and caretakers of this land that we gather on. Through this gathering, we hope to nourish and enrich the long standing tradition of herbalists joining together to share knowledge in community with one another.
