This year there were a lot of folks who badly wanted to attend 1 or 2 days of classes, but whose jobs or whatever made coming for the whole 3 days impossible. Day passes will be sold for 2011, though for the higher price of $160 per day, and should be purchased in advance.
For groups of six adults or more, each person recieves 10% of the price of their ticket. Please note that this discount applies only to the price of the actual TWHC registration ticket. To receive the group discount please email Kiva Rose.
The staff position for Sponsor and Media outreach is currently filled, though you are still welcome to offer any help with this extensive effort.
Our most enthused assistants in 2010 were those who hadn’t even asked for their registration in trade, but were acting solely out of a desire to help with the event. With that in mind, shortly before the 2012 conference, volunteers will be selected from among the paid registrants to assist with various on-site conference tasks. Each on-site volunteer will then be given a special discount code good towards the following year’s 2012 registration costs. If interested, write us with the words “2012 TWHC Volunteer” in the subject line:
In 2010, a kind herbalist who couldn’t make it to the conference, asked us to find a worthy recipient for her paid-for ticket. That complimentary ticket went to a grateful 13 year old plant enthusiast named Mia, who may not have been able to attend otherwise. We are currently trying to set up a limited sized scholarship program, for herbal enthusiasts with an extreme financial hardship, and for specific under-represented groups with the support of businesses and individuals. If you or your business would like to contribute to such a program, with or without public acknowledgment, write us with the words “TWHC Scholarship” in the subject line:
For adult tickets prior to August 15th, there is a $75 non-refundable deposit + $7.00 ticket processing fee included in the ticket price, that will not be returned in the case of a refund.
For children's tickets, there is a non-refundable ticket fee of $2 but the $55 ticket price will be refunded in its entirety until August 15th.
No Refunds Whatsoever on Any Tickets (Registration OR Lodging) After August 15th Will Be Issued for Any Reason!
