We invite you to participate in Earth Water Alliance’s virtual free summer series “Connecting with Plants and Earth” to be held the third Saturday in June, July, and August. Be part of an exploration of how we communicate and work with nature to shape our shared future and craft a new human identity that is in harmony with the Earth.

Presented by Janis Fallon

We’ll look at some of our common lawn “weeds” and trees that our ancestors, and those who walked the Earth before us used.  Plant herbal history includes many traditional, medicinal, historical, and downright shocking uses!  We’ll also go over foraging & wildcrafting basics, getting to know these plants, how they are used in modern times for health and wellness, and simple recipes you can make at home.

Ways to Heal with Nature

Presented by Amelia Loomis

In the continual now of the Circle of Love, we will explore how we listen to All Life through feng shui, gardens as healing spaces, forest bathing, nature journaling, meditation, deep knowing, and dowsing.  We will listen and explore our relationship with the Healing Source of All Life.  In gratitude, each of us connects in this Circle, giving and receiving with Earth and all her Creatures. Our skills as intuitives can help us fine-tune our connections with our guides, power animals, power plants, trees, and the elements, enhancing the way we experience our giving and receiving.  Join Amelia “Amy” Loomis, Alison Squier, and Margo Nelson for a fun and illuminating experience.

Every plant has a story and knowledge to share.  Discover herbs – how to grow and dry them. Get to know them and their use for health and wellness with easy to make recipes.  We’ll also share folklore and stories from our ancestors and those who walked the earth before us.  You’ll look at your kitchen herbs in a new way!
