There are several options for your meals at the Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference: Participants may 1) bring their own food, 2) purchase individual meals from our food vendors, or 3) add a Nourishing Traditions Meal Ticket ($72) to their registration.
There are two dining areas available during meal times:
- The Food Pavilion is an open-air, but covered, picnic area complete with picnic tables. Located right next to where the food vendors are serving food, the Pavilion is a great place to either gather with friends or meet some new friends, while enjoying a meal. Food Vendors will start serving at Thursday dinner.
- Eden Hall offers an indoor dining room open only to women who purchase a Nourishing Traditions Meal Ticket, due to space limitations. Eden Hall is open during meal times only and meal ticket must be presented upon entering for each meal. Nourishing Traditions Meal Ticket meals start with Friday lunch.
