Glastonbury Institute of Sustainable Living has 80+ acres of wooded campgrounds and established herb and vegetable gardens. This beautiful land has been the country home of herbalist Althea Northage-Orr for over three decades. There are areas for quiet camping, late night revelry, a beautiful geothermally heated and cooled building for workshops, 6 flushing toilets with 5 showers, and a small RV area with water and electric hookups.

Located near Culver, Indiana, Glastonbury is just about an hour’s drive south off I90, making it convenient for friends from around the country to join us. There are hotels and motels nearby for those who don’t wish to camp. And did we mention the well over 140 species of medicinal and ornamental herbs to be found in cultivated gardens and growing wild?

We are overjoyed to be hard at work collaborating with Glastonbury Institute of Sustainable Living to bring Midwest Herb Fest 12 to harvest in August.

RV/Vehicle Camping

RV and vehicle camping are very limited by the space we have, and are reserved for people with medical needs that make tent camping prohibitive. If you need RV camping or need to keep your vehicle near your campsite, please email us at BEFORE you register. 

If you are unable to camp...

While we certainly hope that you can camp with us to enjoy the full experience of living in community for three days, we also know that there are some people for whom medical or other conditions make camping impractical. 

Nearby Plymouth, IN is host to a number of affordable hotel and motel options, including Super 8, Comfort Inn, Days Inn, and Holiday Inn Express. 

Please let us know if you'll be staying off site, so we can make sure to have the gate open for you when you return. 

When planning your travel: Be aware that Midwest Herb Fest is being held on
Central Standard Time. The time zone actually changes several times as you walk through the grounds; your phone will not be a reliable clock unless you go into your Settings and lock it into CST and disable automatic time zone updates. 

Glastonbury is easily found on Google Maps and Waze, using the address:
10120 E 750 S, Monterey, In 46960

For older GPS systems, you may find the coordinates more useful: 
41.194948, -86.503348

When you arrive, come up the path and stop in at the first building on your left to check in. We'll help you pick out your campsite, park your car, and transport your camping gear to your site.

To protect the wildlife and plants, vehicles are not allowed in the camping areas.
