Roots & Wings celebrates 10 years in 2021~ ! We celebrate our Kitchen Garden - a group that gardens together each Saturday morning and donates hundreds of pounds of fresh produce to the Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry each summer, our active CSA with FABLE: From Farm to Table, and our labyrinth now reconceived as a spiral of healing herbs.
Over the years we have hosted film series and book groups, roundtable discussions with local farmers and suburban chicken owners and bee keepers, Rivertowns Permaculture - a certification class, bread and soap and sauce making classes, gardening and composting workshops, potlucks, presentations by a Native elder, a local young woman who walks to draw attention to environmental issues, gardeners who are creating stops on the pollinator pathway and so much more.
Our vision is to live more sustainable and full lives through connection with one another and the earth.
COLLABORATORS WANTED for these teams:
- CSA outreach
- Social media
- Programming (organizing workshops, garden tours, films ... )
- Food coop envisioning
- Herbal gardening / creating remedies

Simple, natural approaches to support your health and immune system
- A conversation with clinical herbalist Gabriela Munoz
- Thursday, November 5th via Zoom, free
- JOIN ZOOM MEETING | Meeting ID: 848 4518 3840 | Passcode: 588278
"Most traditional and alternative approaches focus on life-sustaining practices that can actually improve our health and better equip us to cope with disease. When we take care of our bodies, we are less prone to getting sick, whether by germs or other causes. It's all about a harmonious relationship with the world around us.
The one-hour program offers simple steps you can take to improve your overall health and resiliency through lifestyle choices including your activities and routines, sleep patterns and emotional landscape. Gabriela will also share recipes for foods and herbal preparations we can make at home that are allies in supporting our health, such as broths, syrups, vinegars, infusions and fermented foods.
“Every day we have the opportunity to make better choices to improve our health and vitality,” said Gabriela. “Our bodies always strive for health and have an amazing capability to heal if we work with nature and nourish and care for ourselves.”
