BEATBOX BOTANICALS welcomes you to HARRIET’S APOTHECARY HEALING VILLAGE: SOUL FIRE FARM EDITION 2017
Harriet’s Apothecary is an intergenerational healing village led by the brilliance and wisdom of Black Cis Women, Queer and Trans healers, artists, health professionals, magicians, activists and ancestors. We are committed to co-creating accessible, affordable, liberatory, all-body loving, all-gender honoring, community healing spaces that recognize, inspire, and deepen the healing genius of people who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of color and the allies that love us. www.harrietsapothecary.com
For the third year in a row, we are excited and honored to be partnering with SOUL FIRE FARM!!! a powerhouse dynamic family farm, community resource and vessel for liberation. Soul Fire farm raises life-giving food and moves in solidarity with people marginalized by food apartheid. With deep reverence for the land and wisdom of our ancestors, they work to reclaim our collective right to belong to the Earth and to have agency in the food system through sharing skills on sustainable agriculture, cooking, natural building and contributing to the movements for food sovereignty and community self determination. www.soulfirefarm.com.
Join us as we draw sustenance and wisdom from 72 acres of life giving Earth and work with the land to transform trauma and nourish the healing capacity of our vessels.
The intention of Harriet’s Apothecary is to continue the rich healing legacy of abolitionist, community nurse and herbalist Harriet Tubman. Like our courageous ancestor, we intend to expand access to health and healing resources that support our community, specifically Black, Indigenous and PoC folks and the allies that love us, in our healing journeys toward freedom. We also hope to connect individuals and communities to accessible self and community based resources that are rooted in the wisdom of our bodies, our ancestors and our plant families.
Our village is an intentional space for self-identified POC/Indigenous/Mixed-Race Cis Women, Queer and Trans folks and the allies that love them.

Harriet’s Apothecary is committed to being a part of a long legacy of healers who center healing in social justice work for the sake of liberating our bodies and our communities. Our shared goal is to create dynamic healing spaces that support Black, Indigenous and PoC folks in connecting with a deeper sense of resilience, self worth, acceptance, transformative healing, inspiration and imagination to liberate injustice in our tissues and within the spaces we occupy. This necessary tactic of engaging with our own individual and collective healing endorses our lives whole. It reclaims that which has been taken from us and strengthens and enriches our possibilities of survival and in turn the dynamic capacities of liberation and transformation.
