updated January 21, 2019
- Friday workshops – Room available in all workshops, although the Greenhouse, Soil Health and Perennial Vegetable workshops are expected to be near capacity so please arrive early.
- Friday Night Organic Food & Wine Dinner – SOLD OUT
- Thursday Session, Friday Forum, Saturday workshops and Sunday workshops offer a lot of seats and we do not expect these to sell out at this time.
Reminder – It is always good practice to arrive at workshop rooms a minimum of 15 minutes in advance to find a good seat and settle in. This also minimizes disruptions once the speakers begin.

If you are registering as a student, you are required to present your student card when checking in and receiving your workshop badge.
To be considered a student you must be currently enrolled in high school, college or university. Students of private colleges in the areas of naturopathy, homeopathy and nutrition qualify for the student rate.
If you do not have a student card from your educational institution, please present a recent report card or letter from your school confirming your enrollment status.
Attendance of Children at Workshops
It is not recommended to bring children under the age of 12 to workshops, as all workshops are designed for an adult audience.
Children 12 or older are required to purchase a workshop pass. Children 11 and under can accompany a parent or guardian at no charge as long as there is space, and the child does not disrupt the workshop in any way including but not limited to excessive noise and/or movement.
Unfortunately, we have received an increased number of complaints about children disrupting workshops. If children are disrupting the workshop they and their parent/guardian will be asked to leave the room.
