The Nature of Life

WCCW 10-2017 NDD.jpghttp://womenscenterforcreativework.com/events/nature-deficit-disorder-workshop/

Continuing with our indigenous perspectives series, we invite you to experience the Nature of life through your senses. In the Americas we share a legacy as indigenous people, to forge a respectful relationship with all that is life sustaining.   It is this knowledge, this understanding of our responsibility towards mother Earth as co-inhabitants in Nature, which will be addressed. The session will begin by taking a short hike to identify native flora and the benefit of nurturing it, for the sake of endangered native pollinators; followed immediately by the INTER-ACTIVE workshop component. Join us please, and prepare yourself to immerse in the flora’s edible and self-care properties.

This four-hour workshop will be led by Olivia Chumacero at the Women’s Center for Creative Work in Los Angeles. Sensible foot-ware and attire are advised. Please note that e.i.m. events are always zero-waste.
