Welcome to Lady Slipper

Join us for a unique, intimate gathering of women and plants at beautiful Kina gegoo Botanical Sanctuary, July 12th to 14th, 2024 in Cannington, Ontario! Participants are welcome to camp on the land under the trees and experience this sacred place first hand. (If camping is not your thing, please ask for a list of nearby places where you can stay!)

This is a unique weekend to let your wild, tender, curious feminine play. Explore the many gifts plants have for women, with five herbalists teaching about their craft. Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 60 people. We will sing, dance, tell stories, recite a poem or two, laugh and maybe even cry.

Throughout the weekend you will have the chance to participate in four workshops, offered by experienced traditional herbalists, each bringing her own style and approach to herbal medicine. This is truly a unique opportunity to learn from women who have all walked the path of healing with herbal medicine according to her tradition.

In small groups, you can meet, connect with old friends, make new friends and share ideas as you move through each workshop, and during the spaces in between. Saturday evening will feature a keynote address by our featured teacher, followed by a bonfire gathering with song and some dancing.

We’ll also go on plant walk through Penelope’s beloved United Plant Savers’ Kina gegoo Botanical Sanctuary, as well as the chance to explore the gardens and the beautiful surrounding wild land on your own.
