Community Herbalism is hosted by Align with Plants and is a program under Seeds to Inspire's 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization. Donations to help fund Community Herbalism are tax-deductible.
ALIGN WITH PLANTS:
We believe that using plants to care for our families and ourselves is a birthright of all beings of Earth, and that it is our job to help as many as we can remember this truth.
Align With Plants provides education and access to reconnect with the earth through herbs and is now partnering with Seeds to Inspire on a Community Herbalism program.
Community Herbalism is an evolving program of regular meet-ups hosted at local businesses to connect working herbalists throughout Phoenix with community members who are anxious to learn how to take better care of their health.
And we are in the process of planning, planting, and nourishing a food forest to be able to provide nutritious & healing plants for the community, regenerate wildlife habitat, and develop a hands-on workshop in sustainable gardening practices for our regular meet-ups.
We would love to connect with you!
FOOD FOREST @ SPACES OF OPPORTUNITY
from "nothing" to abundance
Phase 1: now (planning) through 2021 (planting)
Phase 2: nurturing & harvesting (~5 years)
