Hi kiki,

I wanted to let people know about the "Lavender Festival" in Colorado:

1st Annual Colorado Lavender Festival - July 15, 16 & 17, 2011 
Palisade, CO 
Sponsored by the "Lavender Association of Western Colorado"

For more information please check out their website and link to the festival here:

I won't be vending, as I've never done a festival before, but I am attending to learn more about lavender growing in Colorado. It will be a fantastic time!

Hello Swappers!

I wanted to bring to your attention an herbal event that is happening in the Boston area for those who are nearby....

HERBSTALK is Somerville's first herbal festival and is taking place on Saturday, June 9th at the Center for Arts at the Armory. This grassroots event is devoted to educating and inspiring the local community about the common and safe use of medicinal herbs. The day features over twenty educational talks on herbal and holistic topics such as making herbal medicines at home, plant identification, aromatherapy, herbs for digestive health and stress-management, and even holistic treatments for pets. Classes are given by local herbalists, holistic nutritionists, naturopathic doctors and natural health counselors and are geared towards herbal enthusiasts of all ages. Herbstalk also hosts a marketplace featuring local businesses and handmade herbal products.


Herbstalk was created to help empower people to take more responsibility for their own health, and to inspire and build a greater connection to the natural world and plant-based medicines.

View our website to learn more about the class schedule and day's events at: http://www.herbstalk.org

There is a $5 suggested donation. No pre-registration required.

We hope to see some of you there!




Yay for Herbstalk and for posting the information here. Please submit it to our community events page as well, if you haven't already!


We wish you awesome success! We know that some of our Swappers WILL be there in fact, including Good 4 U Tea (Jess).
