A worldview of herbalism

JULY 24 - 26, 2020

Wild Herb Weekend is our annual conference, held in the beautiful high mountain location of Valle Crucis, NC in late July. There is something for everyone at this intimate little conference. Whether you grow herbs for a hobby, use herbs for healing, or want to start a commercial herb operation, you will find many interesting sessions and hands-on workshops and plant walks to participate in!

The raffle is a perennial favorite at WHW. With a donation from each vendor, as well as member and sponsor donations, there is always something for everyone to vie for!


The raffle is more than just good fun - all funds raised from the raffle go to support our internship program. The 2018 raffle raised enough to cover the cost of five interns (see Internship Program below) in 2019!


Please consider donating an item to the raffle!

Internship Opportunities

Being an intern is an excellent opportunity for young people to attend WHW tuition free, a $350 value! Interns are in charge of coordinating the raffle, assisting presenters, and helping the NCHA members who run the conference. Interns also have the opportunity to attend some of the classes, have lunch with the conference keynote speaker, and still have lots of time for networking, making new friends, and having fun!
