Spring 2018 Workshop Series at The Sou’wester
Wild Forage Workshop/Forage for Health/Spring Seasonal Transition
with Lara Pacheco & Paige Common
Join Chef, Paige Common of Eatin’ Alive, and herbalist, Lara Pacheco to transition from Spring movement to Summer expansion with nutrient dense food, plant medicine and seasonal awareness. Our workshop will include a plant walk, meditation, food demo and medicine that we make to take home. A catered, seasonal lunch by Paige will also be included.
Lara Pacheco is a Taíno, Latinx mamita that believes that our collective liberation is accessed through decolonizing ourselves by weaving into the web of ancestral medicine. Lara directly works through this realm with plants, fungi, music and dance. When not caring for her family, land and all creatures, Lara runs Seed and Thistle Apothecary an educational resource, and co runs the seasonal wellness clinic that works to provide access to herbal medicine and massage for marginalized communities and brown girl rise, a youth empowerment program for young femmes of color.
Detroit born and bred, soulful living inspires this gal: healthy diets, hearty laughter and active lifestyle. Paige Common started preparing plant-based foods in her Portland kitchen giving life to Eatin’ Alive in 2010. She believes that a rainbow a day will keep the doctor away. Paige is available for one-on-one health coaching, recipe development, pre/post-natal consultations, small event catering, speaking engagements and classes.
