Non-Disclosed Location || Portland, OR
$100 (Mother/Daughter), $50 (Additional Family Member) || Space is limited
A heart setting herbalism experience for mothers of all kinds (aunties, grandmothers, mentors) and their daughters. Calling mothers of all types (aunties, guardians, godmothers, mentors) and daughters to gather with Rewild Portland and Seed & Thistle Apothecary as we hold space together and set intentions of connecting with the heart. Participants will craft herbs into chocolates, tea blends, salves, lotions, and other self care preparations from medicinal herbs. As we create the space to nurture the mother/daughter dynamic, we will also learn to honor self-care through self-love. We will be providing a hearty, vegetarian stew and there will be plenty of tea. Pack snacks if necessary.
Lara is a clinical herbalist who founded Seed and Thistle Apothecary, which offers a monthly herbal subscription of seasonally based herbal preparations from plants she grows and ethically wildcrafts. Within this model, she also offers consultations and customized options where individuals are matched with specific plant medicine to help support their health. Lara is a Latina community organizer and teaches classes, builds gardens, and advocacy around women’s health and access to alternative medicine for the underserved. Lara learned from the plants originally in the farm and field then pursued further studies in the Pacific Northwest with the School of Traditional Western Herbalism and worked with Scott Kloos for his one time offering of the Cascadia Folk Medicine Herbal Apprenticeship.
Kate first developed a passion for nature at a young age when she pondered the extreme efforts of people in her community to eradicate the dandelion. While studying Cultural Anthropology in Montana she became fascinated with traditional healing practices of the region and around the world. After traveling she decided to settle in the Pacific Northwest. Many great teachers and opportunities arrived including a Permaculture design certification course, the Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine and the School of Forest Medicine Immersion program. Kate currently works with Scott Kloos at Cascadia Folk Medicine. She has experience teaching people of all ages and particularly enjoys working with children and young adults. She believes
the natural world around us is a great ally in times of transition. Expressing deepest gratitude
to the plants for their ancient wisdom, healing abilities and their very existence as an individual
is essential to her practices.
