The 2022 Great Lakes Herb Faire will be a two and a half day in person event taking place September 9th-11th. This event is dedicated to the sharing of herbal knowledge and the celebration of our community and bioregion. We will have several speakers primarily from around the Great Lakes with a sprinkling of herbalists from non-Great Lakes states. Our intention is to empower knowledgeable herbalists and beginners alike, provide a space for networking and sharing knowledge, and to strengthen our regional herbal community.
The Faire is a joyous gathering in Chelsea, Michigan (near Ann Arbor) at the beautiful, rustic, Cedar Lake Outdoor Center which is located at 2500 Pierce Road in Chelsea, Michigan. Click here for a map.
Our last physical gathering took place in 2019, at the 5th annual Faire. Since then we have had 2 very successful virtual events and we are really looking forward to being back with the land, the plants and each other where an incredible sense of community has, each year, been palpable through the weekend, with growing friendships and connections that last the year round.
The Great Lakes Herb Faire, brings herbalists from the area and some from farther away together! Over the years the feedback we have received from people who attended has been overwhelmingly positive. People are excited to network and meet other herbalists in their communities, learn directly from teachers rather than relying on books, and walk the trails on the surrounding land meeting the herbs in person. We have many kids attending with a wonderful kids program and we hear from parents and the kids themselves that they can't wait to come back next year! There is always amazing energy from everyone, the food is always delicious and the marketplace is always loaded with fantastic herbal creations.
We look forward to seeing you next fall!!
