Cocktails & Conservation Social Hour Feat. Baltimore Whiskey Co!

Join us for our second social hour at the shop! Whether you already have a passion for environmental awareness or you want to learn more, this will be a chance to meet new people, chat about the natural world, and enjoy two free cocktails crafted by the Baltimore Whiskey Company!

We will also be joined by Jared Margulies, a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Sheffield in environmental politics. Jared will be giving a short presentation about the flowering plant Lantana camara, a beautiful yet devastating invasive species transforming ecosystems worldwide. In the US, Lantana is grown for its attractive and sweet-smelling multicolored flowers. It might even be in your backyard! But tracing a journey from South America to European botanical gardens to the administrative headquarters of the British Raj, uncovering Lantana's social history reveals the impacts of a colonial legacy decimating tropical forests worldwide. At the same time, can this story of a very destructive flower suggest ways we might learn to 'love our invasives' for conservation's benefit? This brief talk will be followed by a screening of a short film about Lantana's impact on the forests of South India, some of the most important landscapes for elephant and tiger conservation in the world.

Be sure to bring some spare cash, as we will also be collecting donations for The Shola Trust, an Indian conservation non-profit working to control Lantana and market its economic use with the support of local communities.

For the Greater Goods Market

A market to benefit a local cause and promote small businesses & artists. Occurs three times a year: spring, fall + winter! This is the 6th Greater Goods! The last market had over 50 vendors, ranging from naturally dyed textiles to rum cakes. 

We are now accepting applications for vendors! Click here for application info. 

Grab some lunch at R. House and swing into the garage for a day of great local shopping. This market will also feature the The Intercultural Counseling Connection- a local nonprofit that provides culturally responsive therapeutic services for asylum seekers, asylees, and refugees in the greater Baltimore area. Access to trauma-informed mental health care can help them cope with the effects of pre-migration experiences as well as the challenges of cultural adjustment. Their network of dedicated clinicians includes native speakers of Nepali, Spanish, French, Tigrinya and Farsi. Counseling services provided through the Connection are provided at no cost to clients. 

We began the Greater Goods market in December of 2015. As a small business, we know how helpful markets and pop-ups can be to introduce your wares to the public and engage directly with your customers. We hope to see you there!

Herbal Allies for Stress and Anxiety: Workshop with Hey Thanks! Herbal Co.

Stress is a part of life.  When we can confront what is causing us stress, notice patterns of behavior, and discover how stress manifests itself in the body, we can be more prepared to manage stress on a daily basis.  

In this a two hour class, we’ll discuss some of the more common physical manifestations of stress, such as insomnia, headaches, skin conditions, anxiety and fatigue. You’ll learn how to build and maintain a healthy nervous system with the help of herbs and other stress relieving practices, and at the end of class, you’ll use your new found knowledge, along with your own intuition, to create a custom tea or tincture to take home!

$40 ticket includes all supplies + 15% off plants at B.Willow!
