postponed due to low registration. We heard from several folks that wanted to come but where unavailable on this day, so we’ll be rescheduling it last in the summer!

This 2 hour Queer Plant Magic workshop is open to queer & trans folks of all ages and will be held at Community Care Apothecary in downtown Florence, MA.

The first pride was not a parade, it was a demand for queer and trans liberation. We chose June for this workshop to honor those who were involved in the Stonewall Uprising in 1969 and all those who came before to pave the way for the LGBTQ rights movements that we are *still* fighting for 50+ years later.  

This workshop is equal parts learning about herbal practices to sustain us & getting into some queer witchy magic together. We'll build a community altar to honor our queer & trans elders and ancestors (known and unknown), charge up special objects that represent your connection with queerness and make a whole lot of magic. 

We’ll discuss several nourishing medicinal & magical herbs to work with for:  

  • nervous system regulation 
  • stress/anxiety management
  • vibrant connection to sexuality
  • herbal embodiment practices (especially helpful for dysphoria)
  • working with shame from internalized homophobia & transphobia
  • protection
  • grief
  • herbs for queer love, lust and chosen fam attraction magic
  • nourishing herbs to support care for ourselves and eachother in community

To register, please choose the payment option on the sliding scale that is correct for you. We trust that you know your finances and what you are able to meaningfully contribute. 

Accessibility: The entrance to the store is on street level and there are no steps involved. There is one small single stall restroom that is not wheelchair accessible. We currently do not have an interpreter available for this date. We kindly ask that you arrive fragrance free. Masks are optional with both doors open for a good cross breeze, air purifier will be on and fans going to help with ventilation.
