Propagation Power – Nov 20th
Plant Propagation: 1pm – 5pm
Community Meal: 6pm
Storysharing: 7 pm
Power is often defined as domination, as top-down force over others. But what if power is also something we can grow? Plant propagation is a vital powerful practice of food sovereignty and ecological restoration! It’s also a skill that has a lot to teach us about power that listens and liberates instead of confines and colonizes. In fact, the word propagate comes from Latin roots that means to multiply by layers and shoots! That’s what this is about: becoming plant allies with biodiversity to nurture gift-giving abundance of food and medicine for land and culture!
Join us at Dreaming Stone to scheme and dream ways to propagate nurseries that can support livelihood, subsistence, and sharing; learn easy tools and tricks for growing acres and generations of plants, and how propagation is always a dance with pruning; identify the differences between supremacist and liberatory power, in our bodies and society, and why that matters for agriculture and land stewardship; and conspire how to graft plant propagation with growing movements that resist violence and waste and emphasize ecological restoration as part of reparations and restorative justice. Come with your stories, knowledge, and questions while we propagate power and cultivate and celebrate healthy culture!
This event is limited to those who have been vaccinated.
