Looking to get involved? You can help by spreading the word–by locally distributing fliers (if you’re in the Northwest) or by posting about it on Facebook or Twitter. We are offering partial work trade hours in exchange for half of conference admission. We always need help with apothecary maintenance (including bottle sterilizing), garden assistants, backup receptionists, and a host of other tasks! Volunteer inquiries can be directed to me.
