The Women’s Herbal Conference Story
The NE Women's Herbal Conference in 1987 was a gathering of women in celebration of the plants in Gail Ulrich's Blazing Star Herb School in Massachusetts’s. Rosemary Gladstar arrived in New England a year or two later, and she found that Gail's gatherings matched the wonderful spirit and energy of the California gatherings that Rosemary had begun in 1976. Gail invited Rosemary to partner with her and for the next several years, Rosemary and Gail co-created and organized these amazing events together. It was one of those rare partnerships that made the work easy and joyous. Though a lot of details and hard work go into organizing these events, it was never work to them, but a dance of spirit and service that resulted in a joyful grand event each year. Gail passed away in the summer of 2000, just a few days before the conference she had created and loved so much. In the way of beautiful things, the dream outlives the dreamer, Gail’s life lives on through the lush green legacy she left us. Rosemary remained committed to carrying on Gail’s legacy, and her dream lives on through the New England Women’s Herbal Conference. The Gail Ulrich Memorial Educational Fund provides scholarships for women who might not otherwise be able to attend.
