  • Imbolc Herbs and Rituals
    5:30 pm-8:30 pm
    02/01/2022
    2831 Linden Ave, Homewood, Al 35209

    Imbolc is the holy day connected to emergence, sprouting, new growth, releasing the heaviness of winter, and looking for the first movements below the surface of the earth that signify the coming of spring.

    The holy day is associated with the Goddes Brighid or St. Brigid.  Imbolc translates to “in the belly” and Brighid is associated with birthing, midwifery, and milk (the very substance of life).  On this day (sundown 2/1- sundown 2/2) Brighid is said to ascend out of the waters on the Isle of Iona, bringing with her springtime and new life.  Although the earth may still appear to be resting, seeds are beginning to stir as new life begins to emerge.  At this time of year we must begin to reflect and ask ourselves what we have learned from the darkness of the winter and how we are preparing to grow into a greater version of ourselves.  We must let those first whispers of growth start to stir in our belly and in our blood.  We must surrender to the cycles, composting last year’s growth to serve the coming year.

    We will gather in person at Evolve studios in the first of 8 gatherings this year.  Across the course of this year long series we will be working with natural rhythms to accelerate our evolution into the highest version of ourselves so that we may offer our gifts to the world to accelerate her evolution.

    In this first gathering we will utilize castor oil packs with violet leaf and poke root placed over the bellies to enhance cirulation, lymph flow, and detoxification through our sacred womb space.  We will drink a root beer soda with sassafras, a traditional spring time tonic to awaken the body to the coming of spring.  Everyone will go home with a tincture of sacred plants for working with Imbolc energy that will include essences of water from Brighid’s well and daffodil.  We will deeply listen to ourselves and one another in order to facilitate sharing of the knowledge that lies deep within every woman.

    9:00 am-1:00 pm

    2824 5th Ave South Birmingham

    The Alabama Organic Family Farms Alliance was born when the three founding farms (Mountain Sun Farm, Belle Meadow Farm, and Snow’s Bend Farm) talked over lunch one January day in 2020.  We discussed the future of small, family farms and how best to preserve them – for those of us that enjoy eating well and for those that want to be farmers themselves one day.  We are a 501(c)5 non-profit organization.

    In forming the AOFFA our goals are:

    • To make it simple for market shoppers and small farm supporters to know exactly who we are and what they are supporting when they buy from one of our member farms

    • To support each other and find ways of working together to ensure the future of our farms and other small farms like them

    • To share knowledge with each other and the larger community
