Sacred Seeds:  A Conversation with Marilyn Walker
Saturday, October 31st, 10:30 am-12:30 pm (rain or shine)
144 Main Street, Avard-Dickson Building, Mount Allison University, Sackville, N.B.
Please join us to explore together the magical powers of the seed; how indigenous cultures have valued and regarded seeds, how to store seeds, and their uses as food and medicine.  We will take a short walk near Mount Allison University to discuss the conditions in which wild plants grow, how they relate to their environment, how to propagate them, and best practices for collection and use. Indoors, we will consider ways to extract oils and nutrients from seeds and explore their uses as salves, tinctures, teas, and fibre.
Please confirm your participation by e-mailing Silvana at silvanacastillo@ns.sympatico.ca before Oct 24th as space is limited.
Thank you.
Marilyn Walker, PhD is a Professor of Anthropology and Ethnobotany at Mount Allison University, specializing in Medical Anthropology, and has travelled extensively to learn from shamanic cultures around the world.  She is the author of the book, Wild Plants of Eastern Canada which will be available for purchase after our gathering.
