(FREE) Screening of Tending The Wild' Saturday 7/8 at 8 PM
We are so excited to hold a screening of the very important, stirring and inspiring film "Tending the Wild" this weekend!
Co-produced by KCET and the Autry Museum - "Tending the Wild" shines light on the environmental knowledge of indigenous peoples across California by exploring how they have actively shaped and tended the land for millennia, in the process developing a deep understanding of plant and animal life. This series examines how humans are necessary to live in balance with nature and how traditional practices can inspire a new generation of Californians to tend their environment."
We are also honored to have Kat High with us Saturday evening too. Kat High is a Native Californian of Hupa descent who is featured in the film, and before the film she'll be teaching us about how to tend Native plants and get them growing in our backyards. As a very special treat, she'll also be serving up (donation-based) samples of Native CA foods- Chia lemonade, acorn coffee, acorn bread, mesquite pecan cookies, and marinated yucca petals and crackers. After, the film, she'll hold a Q & A about the film, and any topics surrounding our Native CA plant habitat and our Californian Native American communities.
Theresa Richau, creator of Native Roots soaps will also be there on Saturdayto vend her amazing botanical line of soaps, lip balms, hydrosols, and beard balms! Her products are amazing and we swear by her Sage Salve, perfect for gardeners hands and infused with White Sage, Arnica, Comfrey, Ca Poppy, Plantain and Yarrow. It's a profoundly grounding salve, smells like a hike in the mountains, contains deeply healing botanicals and we are absolutely hooked! (see pic below)
See you this Saturday, everyone, for a very special evening! The film runs for 1 hour.
