Native Seeds: Food Preparation / Sun Cookies

To-date this winter season continues to be without rainfall, but drought tolerant native California flora is at our aid. So in support of our homeland we will impart e.i.m.’s prevalent philosophy, which is to build relationship with land, flora and fauna.  Come join us and prepare yourself for total immersion in this three-hour native seeds experience. Bring an open mind and know that all your senses will be touched because it is a very hands-on workshop.

We will cover germination techniques used by the Tongva people for thousands of years. We’ll introduce seed fermentation for edible and medicinal use. Everyone will prepare and take home, some honey mesquite chia, sun cookies. The session will be lead by Olivia Chumacero at the Women’s Center for Creative Work in Los Angeles.  Sensible foot-ware and attire is advised.  

Everything Is Medicine (e.i.m. events are always zero-waste)

Olivia Chumacero studied film at UC Santa Cruz and is the founder of everything is medicine, a project that involves workshops, hikes, and other initiatives to raise awareness of native California flora, sustainable water use, and the respectful use of lands belonging to indigenous groups.
