Rock Island Herbal Trip

10th Annual Women’s Herbal Trip – Rock Island, Wisconsin

July 30-Augsut 3, 2017

Wild Medicine, Wild Food and Wild Women!


Rockisland MushroomsJoin herbalist and wild crafter Linda Conroy for this amazing journey on a primitive island located off of the tip of Door County peninsula in Lake Michigan. Cars and even bikes are not allowed on the 912-acre island, making for an experience unlike any other. There are 10 miles of hiking trails, including a one-mile interpretive trail and 5,000 feet of beach. This herbal intensive will offer an opportunity to connect deeply with the plants on this remote island. Participants will hike the island, commune with green allies and enjoy camping right along the lake.

We will set up a base camp and all day hikes will be initiated from there. Glorious views and tranquility will bring us closer to the natural world and our own true nature. We will incorporate plants into our daily meals and learn to identify and work with a wide variety of plants for food and medicine. There will be daily instruction both formal and informal, come prepared to focus on learning plant wisdom and wise woman ways.

Sea rocketThis program requires that you are able to carry your belongings and a couple of group items a little over a mile. This is what I would consider a moderate hike-a backpack is recommended and you will be carrying your tent and personal items.. We will meet at the dock on Washington Island to distribute weight and items prior to boarding the boat for Rock Island. You will also be coached on what items to bring. We will provide a common place shelter as well as food and shared cooking utensils. If you have questions prior to registering email Linda The reward for all of this is camping in a beautiful serene place.. There is an outhouse close by and swimming in the lake is encouraged.

Some things you may discover during this long weekend:

  • Ways to incorporate plants into daily life for food and medicine.
  • Skills for Identifying, harvesting and using local wild herbs.
  • Approaches to creating optimal nourishment.

“I’ve been meaning to write and say thank you so much for the herbal intensive on Rock Island, It was a life changing experience for me and I have been on a new and better path ever since. It really opened my eyes to a new way of looking at things and I’ve discovered so much since then. You really spoke into my life at a perfect time and with the perfect words, so thank you so very much. I hope you are doing quite well. Cheers!” Samantha 2012 Rock Island Trip participant

“How often I think of you, you would not believe. My experience with you was like something out of this world OR something very real in this world! Although, I am sure you may have been able to tell, a few of the moments of that weekend left me feeling like I was naked in a football stadium filled with people, it was quite a memorable experience for me. I would not take it back for one second.”

Deb 2010 Rock Island Herbal Intensive Participant

“I realize now that I am the driver of my healthcare; through herbs, nourishing foods, mild tinctures, and only from a place of centeredness and clarity, do I employ western medicine’s tools. I am grateful that you offered me the resources to make this enlivening shift.” 2005 Lopez Island Herbal Intensive participant
