Re-membering Our Ways: Medicinal Plants From Bayer Farm
Wednesday, Oct. 14 | 5:30-7pm |In collaboration with Landpaths
As some of the most ancient beings on this planet, plants have evolved and adapted to shape the landscape and our ways of survival, giving us food and tools. Spiritually and emotionally, plants have been used as essential life sources and have provided our ancestors with an immeasurable amount of support, as they continue to do so today. However, the more technological advances we make as a society at large the more we tend to forget about are plant relatives and ancestral knowledge about them.
In this workshop, we’ll take a closer look at some of the most commonly used plants at Bayer Farm. Bayer Farm is an organic community garden located in the heart of Roseland, where the needs of both humans and plants are being tended to. In this session, we will learn about some plants you can introduce to your home or into your self-care routines.
