ACTION DAY

Sunday- March 30, 2014
8a.m. – 1p.m.

Please join us for this Action Day in the Anabolic Native Garden
at the north end of the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The park is beginning its transitional design work and we are attempting to save as much of the native flora as possible. Note that you must bring your own tools to work with and planting containers.

Our functions always strive to generate Zero Waste so please prepare accordingly.

There are hundreds of volunteer plants that can be transplanted into 4×4 inch containers. Here is the list of flora that you will be able to carry home if you so wish. Salvia Apiana, Amaranth (red & green) Zempoalxochitl, Yarrow, and Mugwort just to name a few.

The Anabolic Native garden is disappearing before our very eyes. The flora and fauna will no longer exist but we have found some good homes for many of the larger native plants. We are glad to announce that the Haramonkngna American Indian Cultural Center up by Mt. Wilson will be home to some of the sages and ceanothus.

PLEASE REMEMBER ZERO WASTE

POTLUCK STYLE so we can all share our food.

BYOC-bring your own chair
BYOU-bring your own eating & drinking utensils

ANABOLIC CLOSING CEREMONY

A Red-tail Hawk circles the Anabolic Monument as gardeners gather seeds from the native garden that will soon be removed to make way for a new State Park design.

A Red-tail Hawk circles the Anabolic Monument as volunteers gather seeds from the native and medicinal garden that will soon be removed to make way for a new State Park design.

For all our ancestors, we will be having a closing ceremony at the Anabolic Monument this Friday, February 14 at sunset. This will be a parting ceremony to honor land, flora, fauna, and everyone who has come to experience the many changing seasons of the Anabolic Monument.

We are honoring eight years of engagement with the land because the park will be closed for an entire year since it is going into construction with its Second Phase of the park’s design. This means that the Anabolic with all its native flora and fauna as we presently know it, and have experienced, will no longer exist.

The Tongva Elders will be officiating at the ceremony along with a diverse representation of cultures from around our planet. Please join us. Come in your traditional honoring attire, bring your drums, bagpipes, or trumpets but please join us.

This is a Zero Waste ceremony. Bring your own chair, mat, drinking and eating utensils. Share a little something to eat and drink, it’s potluck style.

For additional information please contact us at everythingismedicine@gmail.com

Honoring Land – A request for your story!

As a response to the upcoming park transitions, it would be a gift for you to write your testimony; what does this piece of land mean to you, what have you experienced there, how has this place impacted your life? All of our beautiful stories are a gift back to the land and a powerful way we can clarify the importance of this space to us and our communities.

Please take the time to record your written experience (including but not limited to poetry, letter, ode, testimonial, lyrics-to-a-song, script, etc) and send it to everythingismedicine@gmail.com by this Sunday, February 2nd.

These will be made available to the public on this blog as a way of broadcasting and archiving what we have gained individually and collectively from the Anabolic Garden and the Everything Is Medicine class.
