Another Campus Crops/ Midnight Kitchen summer Workshop!
PLANTS IN YOUR PANTS SPECIAL: DOUCHEBAGS
August 3rd at 5 pm at the campus crops garden located at 3534 University behind the environment building!
Back by popular demand, Plants In Your Pants brings you a special introductory workshop on douching with herbal preparations. Largely decried since the 1950s due the introduction of perfumed and/or antibacterial rinses that were expressive of misogynistic ideologies – not to mention terrible for actual vaginas – douches have a long record of use amongst women in search of happier vaginas. Workshop participants will learn how douching can help when vaginal ecologies get out of control, and can work to compliment the vagina's inherently robust self-cleaning properties. This workshop will introduce relevant anatomy, botany, and equipment (but will in no cases provide medical advice). Contact information for Montreal-based herbalists who specialize in gynecological care will be provided, for those who are interested in working more intensively. Discussion will be frank, graphic, and juicy. Anyone with a vagina is welcome!
Note: This workshop is facilitated by novice herbalist and life-long owner of a vagina, Gina Badger. Plants In Your Pants is an ongoing project connected to Gina's work on the time and politics of contemporary ecologies, and has been presented as a workshop twice since 2006.
