Spring hopes eternal.
Tuesday May 2nd, 6 - 10pm, 110 S. Front St.
Spring ephemerals are perennial woodland plants that quickly bloom, seed, and disappear into dormancy - just as the trees begin to leaf out. This is a powerful + special time to witness these ancient plants. Let's meet at one of our spots in the woods and do so. Many of our native, spring ephemerals are endangered or at-risk. We'll discuss the impact of over-harvesting + strategies on how we can be better allies to these woodland wonders by making an ephemeral flower essence without harvesting the plant.
Saturday, April 22nd, 1 p.m.- 4 p.m.
Sliding Scale $35- 55
Location will be given upon R.S.V.P to firstname.lastname@example.org
Weaving with Pine: Coiled basketry and medicinal uses
Wednesday January 25th from 5:00 p.m.- 800 p.m
sliding scale $35-55 // RSVP email@example.com
Pine is a resilient, abundant, and approachable evergreen with many species growing across North America. In this class, we will be learning the skill of coiled basketry and weaving our own personal pine coiled basket to take home. We'll also explore the medicinal and energetic aspects of our local Pinus species and how to incorporate this useful plant ally into our everyday lives. Everyone learns and weaves at their own pace. Some may leave class with a completed basket, and some may leave with a work in progress. Materials will be provided for folks to take home, so they can continue their projects outside of class.
Self Care for Dark Days
Saturday January 28th 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m
sliding scale $25-55 // RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
If you missed the first offering of this workshop, here’s another chance to attend! The days are darker, nights longer and shit’s been so real, y’all. In this intimate and interactive workshop we’ll gather to discuss how we can support our selves, bodies and spirits in the dark days. We’ll focus on common ailments and herbal allies for this time of year seasonally, politically, physically, emotionally. We’ll also make space to break down why it’s so damn hard to take care of ourselves sometimes. Folks will go home with a special remedy we’ve made in class together. We’re non binary and ask you to come and do you. Heads up, this workshop will include the burning of things like plants and incenses.
