Healing Spirit Plants has moved to become incorporated into the UC Gill Tract Community Farm, located at 1050 San Pablo Ave (corner of Buchanan St / Marin Ave) in Albany CA (just across from the Albany Police and fire station).
Our UC Gill Tract Community Farm is a collaborative agro-ecological project involving Our greater Northern East Bay Community and the University of California. We are a predomInantly volunteer based community farm, for the purposes of promoting food and medicinal sovereignty through community based education, research and service.
Healing Spirit Plants has provided a 50′ diameter Medicinal Herb Garden consisting of 150 varieties of medicinal herbs from traditions around the world. This garden is a mere “appetizer,” aspiring to galvanize Our community to demand the fuller 2 acre “Community-Centered Peace Medicinal Herb Garden” presented in this brochure.
We offer a Medicinal Herb Seminar Series on Sundays from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. These are community based seminars, bringing our community practitioners (those who know) together with community members (those who wish to know). We seek to facilitate a plant based resilient community; all visitors are welcome! Please see our Gill Tract Farm website for fuller details regarding a calendar of Our Medicinal Herb Seminars, Our activities, and Our farm. There is also a Youtube video titled “Occupy the Farm,” which is a documentary of the founding of this community sovereignty project.
We hold a Farm Stand on Sundays at 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM. All produce and medicinal herb plants are a donation based offering to the greater community. Plants provided are in 3″ pots only and of limited varieties.
Thank you very much for your ongoing interest and support (emotional, promotional, material, participatory and financial)..
