About the Event
Join Backyard Abundance and Good Medicine for an immersive experience with the land. Together we will celebrate women, the land and this time of year.
Sometimes as women we have fear about being outdoors alone. This event creates a safe space for you to be with other women and explore finding ways to feel safe on your own.
This event is inclusive of all folks who identify on the spectrum of womanhood.
Bring your whole self on this gentle, reflective walk with the land and let's see what we encounter.
This is an all outdoor event.
THINGS TO BRING
- Blankets, mats, walking poles, anything to help you feel comfortable, are welcome

INVITE FRIENDS AND FAMILY
