FORAGING WALK & TALK and MUSIC OF THE PLANTS
On Saturday, September 9th attend an edible foraging walk and talk with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower, R.N., Herbalist and Plant Pioneers director. This outdoors walk begins with deep inquiry around developing mutual forest intelligence. Harvesting with our senses. See wild plants as ally’s, weeds as dense nutrients and all, as teachers of living an ecologically balanced life. Marguerite feels, “the foundation of our future, resides in our ability to taste our roots (past), this way guides us in moving forward in better health.”
The later portion of the afternoon offers a wild food tasting, drinks and their recipes. While we sit and enjoy weed foods made by Marguerite, there will be a live introduction that demonstrates - there’s a lot more going on with our plants than meets the eye. Music of the Plants technology liberates plant frequencies into sound giving them a voice, so to speak, that up until recent years has not been heard. Validating scientific literature is reviewed from the Society of Plant Signaling & Behavior and the MINT Lab in Spain is relayed. By attending this workshop, part of the proceeds goes to bring this same workshop to children of all ages.
Through human-plant investigations and other programs (see www.PlantPioneers.org), learn to work with plants as food and medicinal virtues, jump start your genetic memory; develop a human-plant reciprocity where its purpose confirms a viable future, regardless of a plants utility and restore our connection to place.

FIRE CIDER MAKING DAY
Sunday, Sept 24th. 12:30p.m. to 6:00p.m.
We'll start the afternoon (12:30) meet and greet.
Sit and meditate with Music of the Plants, discuss experiences to better understand.
Then watch a video review on the past years activities and research in plant intelligence
and plant celebrations and examine all the possibilities plants offer humans in this realm.
After a break, we'll all prepare a take home traditional herbal brew.
The infamous Fire Cider revolutionized for the American palette by Rosemary Gladstar.
We'll hear updates on this fabulous and easily home made vinegar that is good for
man or beast (that is, the beast within) and learn how to use as well. Then, we'll sit
down to a light meal and share ideas, communicate concerns as our future is in our
own hands in what we want to take from this day forward.
What is exciting about this day's event is that it is very reciprocal.

IMMUNE (MOON) JUICE
October 5th, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
This juice is for those days when that winter cold just came through and you don’t know
what to do but you gotta do something fast. In the ways of how past monks prepared,
learn how to prepare that same recipe. It must be buried, oh my ! Really? For a whole month
before usable. The Earth must give it its blessing.
Again we work with Garlic and Ginger but this time with lots of cayenne, honey and Earth energy.
We’ll each honor and make together, as we used to do, this juicy powerhouse.
What happens if you still have a bunch left over come spring? Cook with it!
Come. Sit. Learn. Prepare. And take home a jar to bury from Full Moon to Full Moon.

THREE ROOTS DIG DAY
October 15th, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
All prepare and take home the roots of those plants we thought we such a nuisance in our gardens.
Since my first days in Herbalism, this has become our yearly preparation for our general health and wellness. Since my teacher and mentor, Kate Gilday taught us in those first days of class, how these so called lowly weeds are our wellness and our allies. Over the years I’ve shared this recipe in classes. And the looks I get that Dandelion Root, Burdock Root and Yellowdock Root are great wellness balancers. Well perhaps Burdock burrs are a wee bit too clingy, and Dandelion flowers can over power a garden, but all 3 of these plants can be revered for the significant virtues they offer. Learn to I.D. ... if you don't already know, ... when to harvest, how to harvest, preserve, take home and use... the Three Roots.

The Multifaceted Healing Ways of Plants and Trees
Join Marguerite R.N., Herbalist and Wild Foods Forager for a 2 hour lecture and a power point presentation evening that includes a wild local food and drink tasting; and electronic handout with recipes incl.
As a Plant Pioneer Ambassador, Marguerite share’s on two disciplines in plant science – indigenous and empirical evidence. Hear about the multifaceted healing ways of our lowly weeds, their embodied medicinal nutrition, the intelligence that was once part of our human connection and how we can acquire that again today. Concepts discussed will be on re-learning this ancestral language while bridging the traditions of root healers and recent plant science data; plants bio-regional significance (epigenetics); our mutual relationships (xenohormesis); their aromatic benefits, healing sound frequencies; and, what a plant communicates … with us? Of course, the latter is only half true if we wait for the rest of the science to be confirmed. Do we wait? Or, do we simply attempt to attune to this possibility? Because in essence, we’ll all be healthier for it, land and body. Come listen and be informed and in the end, you be the judge.

Music of the Plants and Sacred Plant Meta-Formations
Walk with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower, R.N., Herbalist, & Wild Foods Forager at the farm, for an in depth early season outdoor weed discovery learning skills and techniques to harvest dense, nutritionals to superior medicinals of the Northeast. This field experiential is as potent as the hands-on immersion segment of plant generated music and their sacred harmonic-formations. NOTE: the latter is making its debut for its’ first time this year at Seven Arrows Farm. Acquire skills that develop human-plant mutual frequencies. The scientific data is starting to confirm what root healers have always known about plants. Come find out what, as well as hear and take a glimpse of the mysterious generative forces of plants. It’s an honor for me to share this with you. All participants receive electronic handouts, recipes, and plant harmonic meta-formations to continue to share the connections we make this day.
Sound Frequencies Generated by Plants
Calm & Sooth the Sensory Channels
Experience a specialized field of study: the investigations of plant frequencies through sound. Join Marguerite for a live Music of the Plants demonstration in which you will hear plant sounds, and see their sounds become forms connected to sacred geometry found around the world. These sound-patterns, have implications for healing the body and mind. Join us for this fascinating plant discovery as we consider its possibilities together. Additionally, Marguerite will introduce a more recent plant phenomena when an Angel Wing Begonia was subject to a brain wave analysis.

As a Plant Pioneer Ambassador (PlantPioneers.org), Marguerite invites
us to enter the field of living organisms - awakening direct perception
in the eco-literacy of human-plant relationships. Emerging research
demonstrates plants have embodied cognition that was once part of our
human repertory - ancestrally encoded since the beginning of human
time. Experience a deep and subtle connection to the natural world, hear
its music and open your heart.
* Plant Identification
* Wildcrafting do's and don'ts

ACCESSING HUMAN-PLANT DIALOGUES
Saturday, July 29th, 1:00 to 5:00
Through direct and indirect observations, as we walk Touched by the Earth
land, we'll be guided to visualize, touch, taste, and smell forageable plants
and listen to plant frequencies using Music of the Plants sensitive electronics
device. And while in circle for second half of program we'll also get to see
sacred plant geometry that develops in relation to our group meditation with
the plants and learn how it applies to our over all wellness. We'll be guided
through healing plant patterns that were mutually created by both student
and plant through Music of the Plants acoustics. This is a life- transforming
workshop so there is Q/A time the last 30 minutes of workshop.
Take home: Electronic educational handouts, healing-sound and photograph meta-creations formed from our dialogue with the plants.
Workshop begins at 1:00 p.m., please arrive earlier to get settled; ends at 5:00.
Bring enough water to drink, sunscreen, bug repellent, pen and notebook and
a small natural gift for the land. Fee: $45 / person
