"Healing the Earth, Healing Ourselves" "Mountain Herb Festival" is back for its fourth year.
It has been billed as one of the most unique festival in the Appalachian area of Kentucky for 2004, because it is put on by people who have little in luxuries but they are trying to do something for the environment and others.
The event is held on a full moon with creeks and lake all around. For those who enjoy pristine wilderness settings way back on 3 miles of gravel roads with a singing creek by your campsite; this is where you need to be.
