A Bit of History
Located in Black Mountain NC, The Southeast Wise Women’s Herbal Conference is an annual conference that focuses on bringing all those who identify as women to learn, shar,e and connect through sisterhood. Founder, Corinna Wood, first birthed the idea of the Wise Women a few years ago after starting her women’s based herbal company: Red Moon Herbs. She aimed at creating a space which promotes women’s empowerment and traditional pastimes such as herbal medicine, self love, and spiritual healing. Since then, Corinna and the Wise Women have shared their knowledge with over 1000 women each year. This year’s theme focuses on plants as medicine.
