The 11th year of the Montana Herb Gathering is held at Sugarloaf Resort, near Anaconda, MT. They change the location every year so we can learn in new herbal environments every time, and it is always in Montana. This time, it is even close enough for many who may wish to come from Idaho and Eastern Washington, as well as Northwest Wyoming.
The teachers come from all over, and are completely top-notch in their fields. It is a camping event, and the food is always jaw-dropping good, no matter what your dietary requirements (although if you have really special requirements, find out ahead of time what you may need to supplement for yourself). This event is also very kid-friendly and many college-age young adults are growing in attendance every year, making the crowd very balanced. The energy is so loving and without ego it is overwhelming and many of the teachers have said that this event is their favorite one on a personal level.
AND you cannot beat the pricing with a stick!! Yes, it does all seem too good to be true! For those who arrange half-work trade/volunteering, it is even better! I also hear there are still volunteering opportunities, so don't wait too long to decide!
Please visit MHG's website if you even think you might want to make a road trip - it will be worth it: http://montanaherbgathering.org (and they are also on Facebook).
Thank you for allowing me to share this event that is dear to my heart (I happily volunteer) and look forward to all who can attend! Perhaps some coordination of rides from Missoula can also happen too!
