About this Event

Relevant Remedies is a “soft workshop” meant to address key topics such as Foraging,Harvesting & Processing Practices, and Communal Skill/Informational Exchange by creatinga circular “show-and-tell/storytelling atmosphere” where participants will share their own relevant remedies they’ve learned through life experience or friends/family. Hence the term “Relevance,” we want to prioritize plants and materials that are found in our respective communities and are likely accessible to most, if not all. This can look like mushrooms, seeds, herbs, etc.

Relevant Remedies are things you can find on your walk home, in the garden, or sometimes

Join us for a night of reciprocation and storytelling as we sit to share remedies, hacks, facts that are relevant to us. Be sure to bring a recipe and/or story to accompany your remedy!
