Forgotten European Herbs, Icelandic Herbal Medicine and Appalachian Root Medicine will be discussed by speakers.
Participants will also go on herb walks, attend an Ayurvedic cookery class and a practical workshop to make herbal preparations.
The event is for anyone with a passion for herbs from the complete novice to students and seasoned herbal practitioners and is organised by the Community of Irish Herbalists.
This year’s gathering is being held at the Blackstairs Eco-Trails Centre at The Old Rectory in Killedmond, Borris, Co Carlow from June 26th – 28th.
The centre has 18 acres of rose gardens, apple orchards, vegetable gardens, riverside walks and there are local B&Bs only a few minutes walk away as well as abundant free camping facilities on site.
It includes organic vegetarian lunches and dinners with life music and film and free camping.
The organisers are urging everyone to buy tickets in advance as the numbers are limited.
There are several options for those wishing to attend for one or all of the days and bookings can be made through www.herfeast.com
The Community of Irish Herbalists is an independent ad hoc group set up to promote herbal medicine through the annual HerbFeast event.
