Numen: The Healing Power of Plants Film Screening and Action Planning
Thursday, August 7, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
Transition Berkeley invites you to join us for a sharing of our local harvest pot luck dinner with an herbal emphasis and a screening of Numen: The Nature of Plants. Numen, defined as the animating force in nature, is an inspirational and educational documentary film about our healing connection to the earth. Featuring stunning footage of medicinal plants and thought-provoking interviews with herbalists, doctors, activists, and many others, the film explores what we're doing to the earth and how that is reflected in our bodies. Numen explores ways to heal this relationship - plant medicine is one way, food is another, lifestyle choices are yet another that are all explored in the film.
Our special guest will be Victory V Lee, western family herbalist, Alameda County master gardener and founder of Victory Garden Foundation .whose vision is “to improve the quality of life in and around the garden.” Victory will lead us in discussion leading to action items that connect the food justice movement with the food medicine movement.
This event is cosponsored by Transition Berkeley, Victory Garden Foundation and and BFUU's Social Justice Committee.
Meet and greet at 6:30 - (optional) bring herb based snacks to share. Suggested Donation $5-10 No one turned away for lack of funds!
