Planting With Spirit

September 7 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our garden is called Wild Root Wellness Farm,

Wild Root Urban Wellness farm is a micro farm that was created by 3 partners that met during their urban farming training. All women possess a passion for alternative healing methods, community empowerment, health and creativity.

 We believe that any community/social justice intervention must contain a Supportive component that allows the full spectrum of the human condition to be addressed, including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual imbalances that manifest as a result of suffering and pain. Supportive interventions should include a strong element of self-determined agency, as we all have the ability to heal ourselves and each other.

With this urban farm we invoke the energy of self and communal healing, self-determination and self-connection to the healing land. We act as a mobile and stationary apothecary, seeking to invoke traditional medicine of the African Diaspora. Using ancestor reverence and African / Native root work and folk medicine as the center.

 The Micro farm produces the flowers and herbs that are used to back the individual businesses the women own , allowing for us to have the agency & power to have access and control over the integrity of the organically grown matter that is used therefore trusting the integrity of the products they create as well as offering free space to BIPOC folks in our connected community to plant with spirit and grow traditional medicine. Apart from being gardeners and farmers, we each act as wellness advocates and energy healers in Black and Brown communities in Boston.
