Isla Roots: Caribbean Plants & Cataplasmas

September 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Remember the healing legacies of Caribbean plants through a Boricua (Puerto Rican) lens

In this all-levels, interactive workshop, we will remember the healing legacies of Caribbean plants through a Boricua (Puerto Rican) lens. We’ll practice storytelling and wisdom-sharing, learn about the various names, properties and uses of at least three plants, including some we can grow in the garden, and learn how to make cataplasmas (poultices) for muscle injuries, relieve soreness, pain and inflammation. 

Facilitated by Myrna Cabán Lezcano (Flor y Machete)
