WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Saturday, April 27 at 6 pm, the Clark Art Institute presents Herblore, an ancestral plant storytelling event. 
Practicing herbalists Brooke Bridges, Twink Williams Burns, and Rebecca Guanzon share intimate stories about their relationships with the land and their ancestors. The event takes place at the Lunder Center at Stone Hill.
Although Bridges, Burns, and Guanzon come from different backgrounds and grew up across the country, the ancestral homelands of the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohicans and the plants that grow in the Berkshires are key to their herbal journeys and healing pathways. Attendees are invited to gather around a bonfire and sip on tea blends created by the herbalists. Stay after the readings for an intimate conversation with the panelists to hear more about their experiences as practicing herbalists.
Brooke Bridges is the owner, head herbalist, and formulator of Brooke's Botanicals, her all-natural skin, hair, and self-care business. Twink Williams Burns is the founder of Ancestor Seeds, an heirloom seed company located on the ancestral homelands of the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohicans, specializing in vegetable and herb seed varieties that are culturally significant across the Black diaspora. Herbalist Rebecca Guanzon promotes mutual aid by distributing free goods and cultivating an intimate circle of accountability partners that convenes at Wild Soul River, an abolitionist herbal gathering space that she co-owns with her partner justin adkins.
Free. For accessibility concerns, call 413 458 0524.
