Herb Gathering in Royston

The Vancouver Island Herb Gathering offers “a weekend of learning, hasting, herbaling and feasting at Innisfree Farm – 3636 Trent Rd., June 12-14.”

Herbal first aid and medicine, the holistic approach to mental health and herbal midwifery, are just a few of the workshops available during the three-day event.

The gathering will feature more than 30 instructors from across the country, including some of the top herbalists from Ontario, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

There is nightly entertainment as well, with Natacha Radojevic scheduled to perform Friday and Shane Philip taking the stage Saturday night.

There are also pre-planned meal options available for the entire weekend, including gluten-free and vegan options.
