QUEER CARE STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
We are a group of queer radical herbalists organizing intentionally as a multi-racial collective with diverse class, religious, and ability backgrounds. We are committed to healing justice, radical mental health, and class accessibility. We aim to create and support community for queer herbal practitioners and folks seeking herbal healing, via educational events, skillshares, and workshops that center herbalists of color and resist cultural appropriation. Because of the ways in which capitalism and government regulation control and commodify sacred and community-based herbal traditions, we seek to contribute to an alternative model of access to herbal medicine.

 

Accessibility info:
The space is accessible to wheelchair/scooters users, though there is no automatic door. We ask that folks come scent-free. Note that there are products sold in the store that contain essential oils and natural plant smells.
