Hujambo, Greetings, Warm Welcome Community and Allies,
We are beginning our 9th year of grassroots service to the People Of Heritage (Of Colour) in our community, especially genderqueer, and low-income folks. We are raising 5,000$ to fund Summer programs which are BY US, FOR US events.
At Authentic Creations Publishing Apothecary our mission is to bring People Of Heritage back into harmony with the Planet through our relationships to Self, our Ancestry, Nature and each other.
We increase and sustain accessible wellness services and education to People Of Heritage in Nucchu Territory, ‘Colorado’ with our nature based lifestyles approach, adapted from Indigenous cultures, which promotes leadership, respect, accountability, mutual aide, creativity, and cultural reclaiming.
Through such initiatives as free herbal clinics, Ancestral gardening, seed stewardship, medicine making, apprenticeships, celebrations, Wildland and Watershed restoration we aim to assist our underrepresented community in self-sufficiency and cultural remembering. Since 2011, our focus is trauma informed care, therapeutic techniques, cultural significance, intersectional diversity, and play. Our zero waste grassroots organization supports, uplifts, affirms, networks, and shares plant knowledge with our marginalized population.
Our offerings are by and for People of Heritage, genderqueer, and low-income members of this community, and their Allies. All our offerings are ethically sourced, and given freely, on a sliding scale, and/or trade based.
Our programs create a Community Of Culture for all ages and are always family friendly.
At many different events we sponsor meals, venue rentals, herbal clinics, seed swaps, educational literature, council, free stores, games, workshops, and networking directories.
Our goal is to use this financial support to hold Summer programs requested by our community:
-Rafting and River Education
-Apothecary and Consultations
-Queer Café and Dance
-Community Murals and Live Music
-Rec. Center Youth Night
-Tea and Tunes
