    The Seedlings Childcare program is held during class sessions only. Space is limited and held primarily for women who do not have the option to leave their children at home. The childcare program does not have an herbal educational focus but offers a safe and nurturing environment, age appropriate activities, and a caring staff.

  • Babes in arms

    Babes in arms

    Mothers may bring "babes in arms" to the conference. Out of consideration for limiting distractions for other participants, and because we are recording classes, if a baby is making noise, we request that mother and baby leave the room.

    A sweet nursery will be open during conference hours for moms with little ones. The nursery includes rocking chairs, padded floor, changing table, and baby toys.

    Some mothers find it difficult to enjoy the conference with their babies—which can include sleeping outdoors in a tent, or hiking out to the parking lot, etc. At the same time, some mothers have appreciated just being in a community of women of all ages—even if they were unable to attend as many classes as they would have liked. Please consider your needs carefully before deciding to register to attend.
