Join us for an evening with
Claudia Abbott-Barish and Meghan Murphy
Tuesday August 30th at 6pm
Goldthread Herbal Apothecary
1 North Main Street, Florence, MA
Using popular education and anti-oppressive techniques, this workshop will cover a brief history of corporate power and how regulatory agencies have prevented (and continue to prevent) us from actions of self-sufficiency. Claudia and Meghan will focus on why cultivating, wild-crafting and teaching about herbs is a true act of resistance and creates new possibilities for us to create more healthy, reciprocal systems (social, economic, and political) in the rest of our lives. This analysis will include examples, past and present, of how people have used herbs and herbal medicine to resist dominant oppressive paradigms. The workshop will end with a dialogue around who and how to engage around these issues with members of our communities; what methods are inclusive and equitable, and how to reach the most people.
All workshop participants will receive a medicinal salve wildcrafted locally from plants that grow in your area.
Sliding Scale Donation for this event is $0-$10. Please join us!
