Mia had a wonderful week of learning and creating at Roots camp. The camp is led by two phenomenal local educator/herbalists, Lena and Fox at a local community garden. She came home with Cherokee songs, stories, special handmade items, knowledge of plants, and experience with local elders that they took field trips to see. Every afternoon, she came home grimy, sweaty, tired and contented. Just like summer days should be.
