This live video offering is part of the Limina Virtual Workshop series, an online connection of ancestral skills. Born from Crowsnest Wildcraft’s annual Limina Gathering, which was postponed from 2020 to 2021 to respond to COVID-19, we are taking our offerings online over the course of several months. Individuals may register for one or as many workshops as you like. Proceeds go directly to the facilitator and to Limina Gathering.

We are deeply honoured to host June Pardue as the facilitator for this event.  For more of June’s work and opportunities to learn from here again, see her Studio Page online.
