FIELD TO BODY: A COMMUNITY GATHERING | APRIL 11 TO MAY 3 | SPRING 2015
What is FIELD to BODY?
Much attention has been shed on the connection between farm and table, but what about the connection between farms, fields, foraging, and the body? Edition Local Community Guild presents a month-long series of community gatherings called FIELD to BODY, an exploration of the growing and thriving local economy created by herbalists, plant medicine practitioners, traditional apothecaries, aromatherapy, foragers, botanical dyeing, and ethically sourced plant-based textiles.
FIELD to BODY will feature the inspiring stories of people whose efforts have made this growing Bay Area local economy an invaluable aspect of sustainable living. Through a series of workshops, talks, tastings, walks, and a community gathering dinner and fundraiser, FIELD to BODY is an invitation to conversation, education, and participation in a local economy where the connection between people and place is essential. Learn how these medicines, tinctures, textiles, and products are made and where they come from. Experience how a tangible relationship to ethical farming, foraging and the land can inform our bodies. Join us as we respond to and continue a long-standing movement that examines the direction connections between consumer goods and their origins.
Meet your neighbors and support your own local economy. Gather with us for FIELD to BODY. April 11th to May 3rd.
Featuring: Deepa Natarajan (Plantspeople), Nicholas Weinstein (Homestead Apothecary), Full Moon Folk Medicine, Leaves & Flowers Tea Company, Liz Migliorelli (Sister Spinster), Olivia Johnson (Fat+Fallow), The Living Seed Company, Travis Meinolf (Action Weaver), Kristina Holey, Dr. Daphne Miller, Emily Ritz (artist), The Great Kosmic Kitchen, Chef Tina Dang, Taproot Medicine, Traveling Miles Studio, and more.
