**UPDATE: sign ups closed! Thank you!!! Popping back in quick to say that there’s still two more days to sign up for the Roots & Blooms CSA fall share that will come out the week of September 9th. Each share contains an assortment of handcrafted seasonal goodies grown here at #antelopefoodforest & a booklet of herbal education for you to begin to create at home <333 {This photo was from the July box, which included my favorite luscious skin cream, chive blossom vinegar, “heal-all” salve, rosewater and lavender rhubarb jam. @nataliehinahara also contributed a gorgeous plantain print which you can find in a previous post}.

Returning home from a week of vivid, beautiful and contrasting experiences. A healing village and community grief ritual, waterfall cleansing, ceremony... to several quiet nights observing Lake Superior sunsets and stars and mighty forest oaks. Integration is intense. I am looking forward to getting back in the garden & kitchen & lots and lots of sleeeeep. I will share more as I take the time to sort through my thoughts and words. 🖤photo is inside of a Queen Anne’s flower

• SACRED EARTH RETREAT • {pt 2}
We have so much appreciation for everyone that showed up and weaved a day of skill sharing and heart sharing at the first Sacred Earth Retreat. Held near the summer solstice, we honored and celebrated the earth during the longest days of the year. It’s gatherings like these that are beautiful reminders of the foundation of our #openhearthpdc program: that everyone has something to share. Thank you, Sharri @terrasuraphotography + @minnesotaherbs, for your powerful ancestral wisdom. Thank you Clare @cgnherbalist for your deeply in tune flower communication, Sasha @alexandralouhiatar, for your birch loving heart and stories of your grandmother. Thank you Dustin @homegrown_land_design, for giving us the practical tools and understanding of the landforms. Thank you Paige @purposefulpoppy, for reminding us the importance of connecting with our bodies and Armel @armel.martin, for bringing your big, bright, community oriented spirit. And it was so special for Cody & I to have an opportunity to share some of our projects with you. Such an incredible day to reflect on! Love to you all.

The spaces I inhabit are a practice in presence. The plants I revisit are a practice in relationship. The fears I face are a practice in trust. The dreams I remember are a practice in magic. This body teaches me, every day, that every experience has a reason, every moment is a story and every action (or non action) is a practice in embodied prayer. That simply being is a poem to lay upon the earth. And so here I am.
fruiting bodies 💫🍄💫
People often ask me what I do for self care... sometimes (often times)  it looks like retreating to the mossy, mycelium loving forests and spending time with the fungi
One of my favorite botanical body creams to date. Made with garden grown calendula and borage infused oils... it truly is divine.
St John’s Wort & flower essence sun alter at Will Heal Farm. Beautiful day of exploration, of nourishment, of trusting body through all the processes✨
A long days work calls for herbal cocktails🌸🥂
