2nd Annual Festival of Herbalists

Celebrate the completion of Essential Herbalism and Applied Herbalism 2018 with Dr. Nate Petley and his herbal students. This year’s Festival of Herbalists is Monday, December 3, 2018 from 5PM to 8PM at Maine Center for Natural Health (One Post Office Square, Waterville, Maine).  It is open to the public and light refreshments and tea will be served.  Herbal products for sale include salves, creams, infused oils, soaps, and more!


Festival of Herbalists was created to serve several purposes:

1. Celebrate all students in Dr. Petley’s Herb Apprenticeship, past and present

2. Celebrate herbalism and increase its awareness in our community

3. Highlight the herbal wares created by students finishing Essential Herbalism (the first year of Dr. Petley’s Herb Apprenticeship) and welcoming back those finishing Applied Herbalism (year two) so they all experience selling in a marketplace setting

4. Serve as a meet and greet for prospective students


Note from Dr. Nate Petley (September 2017)

It is with great excitement that I invite the community to the first ever Festival of Herbalists!  Essential Herbalism 2017 was an incredible inaugural year and I can think of no better way to say thank you to the first year class than create Festival of Herbalists in their honor.
