Frequently Asked Questions
It is our goal to answer the frequently asked questions we have received via email and on social media in regards to the Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering.
Do I have to be Gullah/Geechee to attend the conference?
No, but if you are, it's an added plus. This conference is open to everyone, but our focus is on Black and Indigenous herbalists and the community that they serve, without apology.
Can I purchase a conference ticket at the door?
There will not be any tickets sold on the day of the event or at the door. Tickets sales end on Sept. 1, 2023 or until sold out, whichever comes first. Please do not show up without a purchased ticket, you will not be permitted inside the conference. Tickets are limited so don't procrastinate!
Is this a family friendly event?
Of course it is! We encourage you to bring your family so that you can learn and grow in your herbal knowledge together. We have a workshop planned for the children and there is plenty of room for them to run around and explore. We do ask that the be supervised by an adult at all times. Children 15 and under can attend the conference at no cost, when accompanied by a paying adult.
What is your refund/cancellation policy?
All sales are final so they are no refunds. You may transfer your tickets to someone else for a $5 service charge. This is a rain or shine event. If we have to cancel the 2023 Gullah Geechee Herbal conference due to an unexpected emergency or public health crisis, we will convert the conference to a virtual event.
Is there a virtual option for the conference?
No there are no virtual options available, there will be audio recordings made and they will be available for purchase after the conference.. The conference will be in person only and there will not be any virtual workshops from the conference after the in person session like there were in previous years. So it is highly recommended that you purchase a ticket to attend in person if you are interested.
How do I get to the conference and where do I park?
The conference is held on my family's private property on Johns Island, SC, which it outside of Charleston, SC. The exact address is only give to ticket holders. We encourage you to carpool due to limited parking. Those individuals who are driving will receive information of where to park upon arrival.
