We're so excited, we can't keep it to ourselves anymore. So...drumroll please...
We're a nonprofit organization now!
The organizers of Midwest Herb Fest have incorporated as Herbal Education, Inc.! We've registered with the State of Indiana as a nonprofit, and our application for 501(c)3 status with the IRS has been filed.
This is still us. We haven't "sold out" to anyone. It's just us taking the next step in the growth and evolution of our little event. Over the last 10 years, we've grown from a gathering of a couple of dozen, to over 100 people. Our geographic spread has grown from Illinois and Indiana to cover half the country. We started by just teaching each other what we know, and we've grown to include some of the best and brightest herbalists and teachers in the country. We couldn't be happier.
So, join us on our next adventure, as we begin our second decade and second cycle of Midwest Herb Fest, now being run by Herbal Education, Inc.!
