Community Herbal Education
ONLINE herbal education for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
Hood Herbalism is an autonomous and community based herbal education project. We gather to unlearn and decentralize colonial ways of understanding plant knowledge. We offer an online space in which you can be curious, explore, deepen, and engage in conversations about and with the plants.
Our goal is to help you feel supported, grounded, and equipped with basic herbal knowledge to help you take care of yourself and your loved ones in these times.
New! Pleasure Herbalism: Erotic and Sensual Connections with Plants
Pleasure Herbalism is calling in people who are already on a journey with pleasure. Folks that have started exploring how their pleasure is or has been impacted by trauma and abuse. Folks actively doing the deep self-reflection. This class is a contribution to this work. It hopes to meet folks at a crossroad where they are ready to welcome pleasure in new and expansive ways.
Curious about how plants can support this journey of self-exploration? Depth. Desire. Joy. We will explore how plant medicine can actively and consistently help materialize pleasure in many different forms.
