With Summer Solstice having arrived, we've been hard at work taking advantage of these long, sun filled days. While we're grateful to be tending our gardens, making medicine, wildcrafting, teaching and supporting our loved ones, we can't always be on TCB mode. So we've gotten together a juicy line-up of events and workshops for y'all to enjoy! Come take a break with us... We'll be sipping on some chill tea and taking time to be still, learn and take good care. Up first we have Tick Magic on 6/27 from 7-9pm. This is a free event in collaboration with Sarah Falkner Healing Arts. Tick Magic is a a gathering, a working, a container for facilitated collective magic. All folks are welcome no matter your personal histories or experience with tick related illness or magic. In July, we have a few hands-on plant based workshops. First a Making Baskets w/ Bark workshop on 7/3, where folks will learn how to craft their own bark baskets to take home (limited space available so RSVPs are important!). Later in the month on 7/29 we have a drop-in Indigo Dyeing workshop hangout with Barrie of Beezie Textiles, where you can bring your own cloth or garment to dye, or grab a hankie from Barrie! We'll also be getting sexy and healthy with Myrto, our friend and local herbalist who will be faciliating an Herbal Lube + Sexual Health class on 7/5. In this class you'll learn about different herbs to use in making a water based lube, which can serve as an aphrodisiac, UTI/yeast preventive and support the overall health of your down there tissue states. And lastly, in collaboration with Rally in the Valley, a festival of art, education and action in support of Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood, we'll be offering this workshop on 7/21 : Be a Better Neighbor: Gender 101. As a culture, we are taking major strides towards breaking down the gender binary, one bathroom at a time. While we are grateful for this cultural movement towards compassionate ally ship for our queer and trans communities, we know that there is still a lot of work to be done on the ground. In this workshop we will break down gender identity, expression, and pronouns. We will provide tools towards creating safer spaces, gender literacy, and collective liberation for all. We encourage you to come with an open mind and open heart. No matter what your experience or understanding of gender is you're welcome here.  All workshops take place at Wild Gather's headquarters, The Green Trailer @ Basilica Hudson, 110 S. Front St. Hudson, NY.  To RSVP for any event, send along an email to wildgather@gmail.com and let us know which you're wanting to attend. Thanks so much, y'all! XO, Wild Gathe

spring ephemerals class

Spring ephemerals are perennial woodland plants that quickly bloom, seed, and disappear into dormancy - just as the trees begin to leaf out. This is a powerful + special time to witness these ancient plants. Let's meet at one of our spots in the woods and do so. Many of our native, spring ephemerals are endangered or at-risk. We'll discuss the impact of over-harvesting + strategies on how we can be better allies to these woodland wonders by making an ephemeral flower essence without harvesting the plant.

Saturday, April 22nd, 1 p.m.- 4 p.m.

Sliding Scale $35- 55

Location will be given upon R.S.V.P to wildgather@gmail.com
