An invitation from Hattie Carthan Herban Farm Founder, Farmer Yon:
Dear Community!
I trust this communication finds you in good spirits.
The cold winter is setting in and it is often the time we creative people tend to stay inside and dream about our creative projects. We invite you to connect to the outdoors even in this cool time to fortify yourself in a circle of creative minds. Our gardens and farms are natural spaces which offer us meaningful connection to our inner and outer nature.
Imagine if, right in the heart of Brooklyn, you could gather with like minded, highly creative beings around a warm Sacred fire on land revitalized by our own sweat and self determination, drink amazingly delicious herbal beverages that comfort your mind, body and soul, eat high vibrational snacks, rhythmically entrain, sing together, and do culture sharing and serious community resilience work that really feels like play... All while healing and connecting to people and geography. Starting January 31st and continuing every last Saturday of February and March... You can!
The Hattie Carthan Herban Farm was visioned and created as a health justice community which empowers local residents to take responsibility for their health and wellness by learning about the medicinal properties of commonly found herbal allies in the urban landscape, observing natures seasons and cycles and utilizing gentle processes to obtain natural medicines from the Earth. There is a working apothecary on the farm that mostly utilizes medicines from our small farm and garden. The farm sees music as an important medium akin to spiritual food and currently utilizes musical entrainment as a process for achieving health, connecting to the Earth’s cycles, fostering teamwork and community building. We find music to be central to all of our social justice movements, it is food for resilience.
Urban Bush Educator’s collective musical work spans sixty years, thirty of which have been teaching West African and afro Caribbean Drums and Dance, organizing large communal drum circles and rituals, healing drum circles, sound medicine processes for plant communication, activist marches, creating and delivering custom tailored workshops for groups embarking on rhythmic entrainment as a tool for community building. Farmer Yon and Michael have created and hosted The Drumming Up Health in the market program  at the Hattie Carthan garden and it's Playstreets since 2009 . That program encourages youths, adults and elders to Learn traditional market songs and dances of the African diaspora in order to combine the interests of food, cooperation and exercise in the marketplace.
