Event Description

The sustainable agriculture, biodynamic, and food justice movements carefully promote the protection, care, and production of healthy ecosystems, soils, vegetables, fruits, and livestock, but do not focus equal attention on medicinal plants and herbs. Reviewing indigenous knowledge about our relationships with the medicinal plants reminds us that, beyond a just concern for plant species, what is at stake is the reclamation of lost sacred and healing knowledge for humans - and for the land. This session will include a discussion of traditional ways of knowing plants, an experience of being present and mindful with a healing plant, and reflection through writing and drawing on our connection with the plant.
