Healing Ancestral Plant Kin (BIPOC-only space for healing)
We have been improperly conditioned to soothe ourselves and treat conditions and symptoms with toxic substances. So many of the ailments we face are as old as time, and our people have had practices to treat them naturally since time immemorial. Our science is as old as life itself. In this participatory workshop, Melissa Meyer of Rose Island Farm—an Indigenous, family-owned farm in Tacoma—will create space to reconnect with the practices of harvesting, gathering, processing, distilling, and the making of wild remedies. Melissa will host a safe space for Black and Indigenous community members to learn more about how we can learn from, and heal with, natural ingredients.
This session has limited space and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please arrive on time to ensure you will have access.
