CELEBRATING A NATIVE PLANT ALLY
Explore the ancient magic, stories, and lore that surround the elderberry. We will learn about elderberry and participate in a creative ceremony for this unique species. Elderberry is a native plant ally that is a treasured source of food, medicine, and tools for people in many parts of the world. This class is inspired by the worldwide tradition in which people gather to celebrate the heritage species that share our ecological community. We will offer songs, conduct a meditation and create a collaborative ritual to celebrate the power and medicine of the elderberry.
