Ferrum - The Blue Ridge Herb Lore Gathering at Ferrum College on July 20-22, 2018 will offer a unique herbal experience focused on healing and history. Herbalists whose expertise draws from Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Wise Woman Tradition, and Rastafarian beliefs, will share their knowledge about how to naturally nourish the body and mind. Those attending the gathering may choose from six classes, including making salves and tinctures, experience onsite acupuncture, shop with vendors supporting all classes, enjoy catered vegan food by Potted Plants of Blacksburg, and take a herbal identification walk, all after starting their day with morning yoga.
