Reconnection: A Nature Experience for BIPOC

Continuing a series begun in the winter of 2021, GWI is collaborating with Wild Earth, offering an opportunity for BIPOC to gather outdoors.

As we start making preparations for the cold weather months, we will share timeless space around the fire, crafting medicine pouches with yarn dyed with local plants, making medicinal teas and herbal tinctures. This day will be all about preparations to turn inward as we sit around the fire, crafting, learning about medicinal plants and dyeing techniques. In conversation and comfort food*, we will build connections to each other, ourselves and the land that supports each and every one of us! 

This is a family-friendly gathering. Children are encouraged to attend and childcare will be provided, if need be. If you are requesting childcare, please let us know via the registration form.

We would like to remind everyone that we are entering hunting season. While we are not expecting to be in any danger, we want to err on the side of caution and ask that everyone please wear bright colors (blaze orange or blaze green) during our time together. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. 

*We will have vegetarian options available for lunch.

If you identify as part of a BIPOC community and are interested in participating in this event, please email [email protected]

Support GWI

These times call for collective action. Your gift is the solid ground that allows us to support and cultivate Good Work: that is, people and initiatives that are rejecting systems of oppression and extraction, and building regenerative economies and thriving communities.
