afrofuturist apothec∞ry

a british-african herbal where plants native to the uk + africa are cultivated not only for their medicine, but for their adaptability to urban ecosystems, tolerance of dry + poor soil + hardiness. 

liberated from the oppressive hierarchies that propagated colonialism, plants + people find ways to thrive during times of increased physiological + psychological stress – where increasing agency in relation to climate justice is not an act of revolution but of everyday magic 

in the midst of a crisis that was not of our creation + struggling with the despair caused by environmental degradation, we do not steel ourselves with resilience but ask: how can we cultivate joy? how can we rest + soften? how can we dance + regenerate in our activism?
