This Herbfest is a brainchild of three local herbalists: Salli Greene, Jo Anne Grubert, and Chris Haller. There are very few herbal conferences nationally and none in this area. This can make it difficult for herbalists, young and old, male and female, to gain more education in a conference setting. Sturbridge, because it is centrally located, is an ideal location and is expected that the Herbfest will be an annual event.
There will also be local products, handmade items, crafts and more set up on the lawn of the Sturbridge Common.
The Sturbridge Herbfest is now taking vendor applications, $75 for a 10x10 space. Pre-registration is $15 and $25 the day of the event. There will be many classes, a weed walk and yoga stretch included in admission.
