All members have access to our monthly Saturday gatherings with a shared meal, medicine and plant gifting and trading, and workshops and work parties. You’ll also have access to our private Facebook group, as well as a library of past classes, and our emerging collaborative nursery and apothecary.
That is a lot of wonderful pieces, but the big picture is more than the sum of the parts.
It is a lot of fun and deeply meaningful to rediscover innately human skills together. There are so many simple things that we are rarely taught, that all of our ancestors understood, and it is a joy to keep company with friends who are on the same adventure of discovery. This stuff matters, and it’s fun!
But in the context of this crazy world, the most important work we are doing is relearning how to live together in mutually-supportive community. How do we organize ourselves so that our lives are better because we are working together? How do we help each other have abundant gardens and full medicine chests, and more energy than we would if we did it alone?
Life works waaay better when we live it together, but we have to do it right or it just winds up more complicated.
We’re learning how to do it right.
