Not your typical vacation

Do you have vacation time coming in 2006? Herbalgram.org has listed the 2006 events calendar. Rather than the same Caribbean vacation or week at the Jersey shore, consider linking your vacation to a CAM meeting.

Here’s one that makes my tastebuds tingle.
July 30-Aug 5: Wild Foods Mountain Retreat. A week-long program in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Forage for wild edible and medicinal plants, and prepare tasty and nutritional meals.

Hmm, Hmm, Hmm.

Other must attend meetings.

October 16-17: First International Symposium on Pomegranate and Minor Mediterranean Fruits. Adana, Turkey.


October 28-30: The 2nd Internatiomal Symposium on Saffron Biology and Technology (ISSBT). Mashhad, Iran.

Do you think CAM is becoming too specialized?
