A workshop series that unfolds over all four seasons of 2018. This series is exploration of the relationship between nature, the physical body, our spirit, and our communities. Each workshop will give participants the opportunity to build land-based skills, practice herbal medicine-making and ritual, and explore lessons that the land offers us for personal and community resilience.
We encourage you to join us for the full series to get the most learning out of the workshops. We will offer registration for individual workshops as their respective seasons near.

Phelicia Magnusson is a sensitive creature who works in fierce love. She is an herbalist and flower essence practitioner whose formal training took place at Arbor Vitae School of Traditional Western Herbalism in New York City and with Delta Gardens in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. Phelicia is particularly interested in the intersection of ritual and healing; she has spent a good deal of time learning in ceremony with plants and elders in the Peruvian Amazon and the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. As a healer, Phelicia has a great deal of gratitude and awe for the plants themselves, the infinite wisdom they hold, and the elders and traditions that hold plant wisdom sacred. In her work, Phelicia’s mission is to be a medium between plants and people and to support individuals in reconnecting with the wisdom of their bodies and the missions of their hearts.
Ari de Leña is the owner/operator of Kamayan Farm. As a queer, mixed filipinx land worker, she is inspired by the ways that growing food can be an act of resistance. Ari's work with Kamayan Farm is deeply informed by the injustices and resilience that she witnessed during a decade of environmental justice work alongside low-income communities and communities of color. Kamayan Farm is an experiment driven by a vision to (re)connect communities with land and to collaboratively share cultural stories through food and medicine. Ari is a firm believer that our relationship with land is a sacred dialogue; one that allows us to channel the wisdom of plants, our bodies, our ancestors, and makes us more effective agents of change.
