UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

Bioregional Incense

w/Jade Alicandro Mace of Milk & Honey Herbs and Leslie Chaison of the People’s Medicine Project
Saturday Oct 12th
At the People's Medicine Garden at Just Roots Farm
Greenfield, MA  
11:30-1pm
$20 suggested donation (no one turned away for lack of funds) for groups working to protect sacred plants.
Please pre-register by emailing:  peoplesmedicineclinic@gmail.com

Cultures all over the world burn herbs for ceremony and shifting energy, however many commonly burned herbs are at-risk in the wild.  Learn how to connect to our locally abundant aromatic plants as we make bioregional incense together.  By working with abundant local plants and especially herbs from our own ancestral traditions, we avoid the harm caused by commodification and over-harvesting of plants sacred to cultures in other places such as White Sage and Paulo Santo, both of which are dwindling in their native range due to over-harvest. This workshop will introduce participants to our local incense plants and techniques for making your own burning bundles and local incense as well. Handouts and recipes will be provided!
