Herbivore Anarchist Apothecary Meetup
Join us as we take a closer look with herbs, one simple at a time. Many of us have grown away from plant speak since childhood. It is here that can mark our initiation, the return, or even a widening of these allies. We dedicate one herb to each meetup and have one rule, that there are no rules. This is an informal gathering to share the stories, truths, and sensual dynamics about each herb such as: herbal lore, medicinal properties, foraging regulations, preparations and recipes, toxicity, maybe even a spell or two. We focus on the local plants, common plants, and simple weeds to our Pacific Northwest region.
Every level of interest is invited and uniquely important from the hedge witch to a green goddess, steward of the plant world to sustainable community activist, botanist and herbalist, gardener and nutritionist.
This particular meetup is dedicated to the wild violet. Violets are virtuous, vivacious, and valuable. Violets are unassuming but oh, so powerful. Eat the flowers, drink the leaves. Wild violet is also known as aunt viola, heart's-ease, johnny jump-up, and wild pansy.
Bring a notebook/sketchbook and join us!
There are herbal teas, scented water, and tiny morsels at hand for you.
This is a FREE event.
