Connecting vegan

Thought to all social justice

Where y’all been on this

Defensive eaters

Of meat calling vegans out

on privilege, soy

I remember when

called racist for connecting

Oppression of all

Really glad I got to see Carol J. Adams speak yesterday at the Vegan72 event in Richmond. Venue was awkward/too crowded but to hear someone who’s work I have admired for so long (since college so at least 10+ years now) was awesome, and it was a great refresher. So thankful to the organizers and glad so many people made it out to the event.

Deep South Herbal Conference is bad herbalist practice.

I got this from @mapletwigmedicinals on Instagram. Please see their feed for more info. They got the info from @herbanhealing @rootsofresistance @pauladiaz_herbalist @linda.black.elk – please check out these and other BIPOC for more info

This came to my attention today. I am not a huge Herbalism conference attendee, because I can not afford to be. As a southerner, a white southerner, and an herbalist this conference, with it’s undiverse line up, location, and horrid policy is an insult. This is not what Southern Herbalism is, this is what a bad version of Southern Herbalism is. The organizer who’s name I see is Darryl Patton who goes by The Southern Herbalist. Honestly that title pisses me off, just with the exclusivity and hierarchical nature of “The” as if he was crowned southern herbal king. Nope. Does not represent me. I am a southern herbalist and I honor the many who came before me, and the many alive still who have preserved and shared the practices and knowledge of Herbalism.

Mullets, commonly

Derided in classist ways,

Are the best of looks
