The Autumn equinox approaches. The nuts and fruits of the end of summer fall, the birds begin to flock and the nights begin to cool. The land will be changing and it's our task to notice those changes and what they mean for the coming colder half of the year. We will discuss preserving medicines as tinctures and teas, chat about using nettles to make cords and rope, and think about harvest's tie to reciprocity.
Since time immemorial, people have made offerings and gifts to the land or in some way celebrated the bounty of the growing season. From corn dollies to harvest festivals to state fairs, we'll talk about what an offering really is and what kind of offering is appropriate and indeed helpful in our present world. We'll sit with the idea that volunteering can be a type of offering as can gardening with native plants and cleaning up trash in natural areas.
Ages 16+ please. $12 per person. Park entry fee included in registration. Please meet at the Loess Hills Lodge.More Information
