Throughout her years of experience as an Herbalist, and her academic study as a Botanist, Abby realized how much of what we know today as Herbalists comes from BIPOC people. However, that knowledge is usually not credited when taught or shared. Through her work with the Cherokee people, Abby started brainstorming about and practicing reciprocity for that knowledge. She'll share with you some of these thoughts and experiences and how they came into fruition. Then we'll have a discussion including your thoughts, ideas, and experiences. Take away ideas about how to practice reciprocity in your community.
