Event description

Description

Here in Portland we have a wealth of nature at our fingertips, and so many opportunities to see so many beautiful and healing plants at our local parks! Join us explore the herbs of the open fields and red cedar groves of Powell Butte, and should luck smile upon us, we might catch a view of Mt. Hood, Mt. Saint Helens, and possibly Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Jefferson.

Meet at the bathrooms in the main parking lot off of SE 162nd Ave. Please email selenarowanherbalist@gmail.com by 9 am on the class day if it appears we may have inclement weather, to confirm whether class will still meet. Please wear sturdy shoes, bring water, and protect yourself from the elements. We may walk as far as 2+ miles, though at a slow pace with lots of rest breaks.

About Selena:

Hailing from the wild redwood forests of northern California, Selena Rowan has made her home in Portland for the past two years. Ten years of herbal study in bioregional western herbalism and Ayurveda, five years of service as a community herbalist in retail apothecaries, and over 30 years of practice being a human inform her work. Balancing a background in biology with a commitment to radical embodiment and reconnection to nature, Selena works to help uncover reservoirs of resilience in those she supports. Learn more about her practice, Nine Sisters Botanicals on her website, ninesistersbotanicals.com. She is obsessed with taking pictures of flowers and making collages, which you can check out on her website or @thewyrdvolva on Instagram.

Selena is eternally grateful for the teachers who have supported her on this path: Christa Sinadinos, Greta de la Montagne, Traci Webb, K.P. Khalsa, Janet Czarnecki, Sabel Regalia, and others. Selena dreams of a world where ideals of mutual aid, earth renewal, and love guide us in all we do.
