Hey, Fellow Herbies!
This month, we're doing something a bit different for the study group. You may have heard of a truly amazing herb conference called Herbal Resurgence (http://herbalresurgence.org/rendezvous-intro.html) (that right there is a link to the site for more information, and yes, that is the back of yours truly in one of the photos from last year's conference), happening in Arizona this month. We have two dearly loved members of our tribe who have been lucky enough to obtain work trade positions there--now all they have to do is GET there, and keep themselves fed while they learn.
So then, I've changed this month's herbal study group to a fundraiser to send them to Herbal Resurgence, and I'd love for you to come and support them. Why support someone else's trip to a conference? For a few reasons:
-These are womyn doing good, important work in our community, making medicines and assisting people in their healing journeys. We affirm and support all members of our community who do this work.
-When we encourage their education, they come back with gifts to share: knowledge and community building and enthusiasm and passion that will extend throughout Long Beach and beyond.
-They are members of our tribe and we love them, and this is important to them.
So, what this month's herbal study group will look like: We will gather at Betty's home, as usual, from 7 to 9 pm. Donations will be eagerly accepted, as usual, but all donations will go to the fundraiser for the trip.
Kirsten and Blanca, the attendees, will be making some truly amazing medicines: elixirs, teas, tinctures and more, to share with us. There will be much tasting, drinking, and merriment as we get to imbibe and share their creations. I will discuss the formulations and how these specific blends work for support and nourishment and healing, while we taste and have fun.
If you would like to purchase any of these products, your purchase will go to fund their trip, too.
So come on out this Tuesday to show your Herbie Love to our family members, try some very fun and incredibly tasty herbal products, get some learning in, and party! it will be a very fun evening. Even if you can't donate to the cause, come anyway and give some love to the community.
Hope to see you there!
