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.

I would rather die

Sweaty and dehydrated

Than endorse H Vac

No matter how much

You insulate suffering

Is cheap and it’s green.

As a southerner

I am made of barbeque

Sauce and salt, no lie.
