There’s something magical in the air here in Boston.
No, I don’t mean Mission Magic! although that would be kind of awesome (and give me kudos for the obscure reference please!) – but something even more awesome:
That’s right, Herbstalk 2012 Boston’s first Herbal festival:
HERBSTALK: Saturday, June 9, 2012.
Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave. in Somerville, MA
Classes run from 11am to 6pm
Herbal Marketplace open from 11am to 6pm.
Admission: $5 suggested donation. Open to everyone!
Children are welcome!
What’s Herbstalk about? Well, it’s about one day – more seriously…
HERBSTALK is a community event devoted to educating and inspiring people about the common and safe use of medicinal herbs. During our day-long herb fest there will be educational talks and workshops geared towards herbal beginners of all ages. All classes are given by local practicing or aspiring herbalists who are coming together in order to share their knowledge of the healing power of plants. We believe that herbal education empowers people to take their health into their own hands and builds a vital connection to the natural world and the plants that sustain us.
Our mission is to connect people with healing herbs. HERBSTALK envisions a world in which people of all backgrounds have an understanding of herbs that can be used to heal, feed and nurture us all.
HERBSTALK has become an evolving collective of herb-lovers composed of individuals, organizations, schools and businesses that want to help their community understand and embrace the healing powers of plants. Will you join us?
Hey I’d be going even if I wasn’t giving a talk there (check out my events page and yes I finally have an events page – which is only half way there since I have several things still to be scheduled this summer.)
If you’re in or near Boston next Saturday – I hope you go and enjoy.
Thanks to my good friend Steph for having the vision and magic to make Herbstalk happen! (Hi Steph!)
P.S. Sadly Miss Tickle from Mission Magic won’t be there.
I’m sure Steph did her best, but can you imagine what sort of speaking fee she must have wanted….
