Community and Herbal Medicine in Disaster Situations

Herbal and Community Approaches to Disasters

When disaster strikes, government response is often slow leaving
victims without help for days. Community preparedness and response is
vital. This workshop will teach you how to prepare. You will practice
some response tactics and learn to seek out recovery resources. This
is an introductory workshop that will provide learning and
preparedness resources and suggestions for further education.
Sometimes herbal medicine is the only medicine immediately available.
Learn about the plant medicines that can be stored or gathered for
these situations. Visit our website to learn about our work in Haiti
after the earthquake:

Yup, it's that easy! It's also a lot of fun!

Facilitator's experience: 
I began guiding this artistic, inspiring, creative, healing, expressive process in 1997 in Sebastopol California. I grew up in DinkyTown and was intensely involved in the Theatre scene here for many years. All the modalities in this class I've practiced for years. I hold no degree. I'm 46 and have been performing, writing and teaching most of my life. In essence I am a mute street clown, poet, guide to the wilderness of inner human life, artistic expression and living spontaneously from the heart. Intuition, structure, and raw experience are my guides. I've found small groups being courageous are very powerful and enlightening. Categorically I have worked with Outward Bound School as a wilderness guide with adjudicated male teens, facilitated groups of kids and adults on most topics under the sun, worked with diverse populations, taken countless trainings and workshops, traveled to far off lands to teach English communication techniques, spent ample time in solitude in urban and wilderness settings. I love this process and it brings me great joy to share it. All are welcome no matter what. I'm only here until July so let's do this!

Basic Bike Maintenance at Sibley Bike Depot (April)

This class is designed as a complete introduction to the basics of maintaining your bicycle yourself. Learning to fix your own bike can save you money, ensure access to reliable transportation, and be a rewarding personal experience to understand how your vehicle functions. Participants aren’t expected to know anything beforehand – the only thing you need to bring is your lovely selves, your bike if you want, and a creative desire to learn!

In addition to providing technical explanations and building mechanical knowledge and confidence, this class will attempt to provide a basic overview of the role of community bike shops, as we work to build sustainable transportation movements locally and globally.

The class is 4 sessions on Sundays from 4:30-6:30
