(from event page) Native Elders remind us that plants are teachers. They adapt, communicate, collaborate, model generosity, and are resilient in challenging situations. In this 4-week teacher training, participants will learn about plants and social-emotional skills including mindfulness, regulating emotions, tolerating stress, and developing healthy relationship. Each workshop will include getting to know 3 to 4 plants, hands-on cooking and medicine making, and a movement activity. Facilitators will share ways to adapt the curriculum to a variety of learning environments including formal and informal education and behavioral health and wellness programs.

Taught by Elise Krohn, Mariana Harvey (Yakama), Chenoa Egawa (Lummi), Nakia DeMiero, Elizabeth Campbell (Spokane), and Lisa Wilson (Muckleshoot).

Priority registration for these workshops is held for urban Indian organizations, IHS-funded urban Indian health programs, and members of the National Urban Indian Family Coalition. A wait list will be maintained for all folks who do not represent these organizations.
