plant kin relations, international solidarity and liberatory interdependence



join us for an info share & plant exploration on plants who sing songs of interconnection and freedom.

together we will explore the ways that plants defy borders, and the beauty of international solidarity with peoples fighting for self determination, freedom from colonial violence, and resistance to empire.

we will look at plants that live in the northeast of the US (Turtle Island/N America), Ireland, and Palestine, learning about some specific babes that grow across these borders. We will get to know them and let them remind us how interconnected we are. how interconnected our struggles for freedom, happiness, and survival are across the world. how we are in this together. and we will explore what wisdom they might have for organizing and connecting in the collective struggle for total liberation from oppression.

This will be part info share, part community reflection & dialogue.

Who is this for?

this info share is especially for folks who are engaging in ancestral reconnection work or community organizing work as settlers on N. America; reckoning with legacies of domination and violence is an essential, ongoing thread of this work.

If you care about plants, liberation and justice work, this is especially for you too. All are welcome.



This is a RECORDING of the live info share that took place on Monday, Feb 19, 2024.

This is a gentle and lovingly held container.  Come as you are.

Gather your journal or other reflection supplies and be ready to reflect on your experiences and embodied wisdom!


Join us in community to explore what plant kin have to remind us about community care, the coloniality of borders, and the interconnection of us all.

together lets explore the ways plants defy borders, and invite us into deep webs of international solidarity. lets listen to what they might teach us about resisting colonization, remembering connection, and overthrowing empire – here on turtle island/n america, the lands of our ancestors (for folks of settler or diasporic descent) and places that hold our hearts, like Palestine.

plants have so much to teach us, and there is always so much to learn. we only have to make space, open and listen.

Who is facilitating this offering?

For folks new to me & my work –

my name is rowan (they/them) and I’m a qt herbalist, writer, researcher, big nerd and devotee to plant kin. I deeply believe in justice, radical community care, and embodying our values even under pressure.

The threads of my work include politicized ancestral reconnection for settlers on Turtle Island/N America, queer healing, ritual and devotion with the holy, navigating chronic illness, long-c & DJ, cultural traditions and ethnobotany, and more. I’m a white-bodied 3rd gen US person who comes from Irish, Lithuanian, Scottish & Sicilian lineages.

I base my work off of my lived personal experiences, relationships with the holy wild, and deep research. I love researching and learning, and then sharing what I’ve learned with community.

I have deeply personal relationships with Palestine and Palestinians (within ’48 borders, the West Bank, and Gaza). I was lucky enough to spend time there over a few years. I visited Gaza in 2012 and it changed me forever. I also have visited, studied and lived in Ireland. I grew up in the northeast of the so called US, and currently live on western Abenaki land, in the amazing wild highlands where the Green and the White Mountain ranges meet. This is why this offering combines these three regions when considering anti colonial global solidarity – they are regions I am deeply personally connected to, that I am devoted to, and that have been great sites of learning & transformation.

The issues of military occupation, settler colonialism, and genocide – physical, cultural, etc – are powerfully important to me. I’m an anarchist radicalized by Palestinian anarchists, and believe firmly that we each have a part to play in weaving a world of justice and liberation.

thanks for being in community with me, for your support of my ongoing work, and for being a part of this broader weaving.
