What you'll do

This online experience will focus on learning about natural healing methods that have been used in Haiti for generations. We will start first by walking through three different teas - how to identify the plant, how to brew it, and its medicinal history. During this portion, we invite you to brew a cup of your favorite tea as we dive into a conversation about #plantparenthood. Like many others, we've been using our houseplants as a way to cope during these strange times. We want to take you on this journey with us as we discuss choosing the right plant for your space, which are the best plants for improving air quality, and walk you through an interactive activity, like repotting & propagating a plant together. There will be time set aside to answer any plant-related questions you may have because we are happy to share all that we've learned with you. We've all been staying at home as much as we can but with the power of the internet, we are still able to create a vibrant, thriving community centered around natural healing!

What you'll need:
a steady internet connection (via a smart device or a computer)
a cup of your favorite hot tea
a houseplant of your choice (if you’d like to follow along with the interactive activity)
Other things to note
We know that everyone will be joining from different places. We will try our best to accommodate different internet speeds, etc by speaking clearly and sharing notes, etc throughout the experience.

I am a Haitian-born, Brooklyn-raised linguist who loves to share all things related to Haiti! I come from a family who has worked on the land for many generations. For the past several years, I've hosted over 500 people for the Haitian Tea Party, an experience focused on learning how tea and herbs are used as traditional healing methods in Haiti. As we all cope with the global pandemic of COVID19 we'd like to share some of these healing methods with our guests while also diving into the world of plant parenthood.

This was a great experience. The presenters were warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and hilarious! I also appreciated that they presented information that can sometimes be intimidating in a very approachable way.

Winnie & Wynnie were wonderful hosts and I was lucky enough to join a very small group so it was an intimate conversation. I wasn't sure what to expect going into it but the hosts were both funny and insightful in their storytelling and clearly open to sharing a bit of their world. It was great fun - thank you both :)

Winnie and Wynnie's passion for teas and plant care really came through. They incorporated their relevant personal stories in a thoughtful way and presented their knowledge, insight, and experience through the lens of Haitian background and culture. I can't wait to attend a plant trade and tea party!
