Silver Plume is an unasuming  town along Interstate 70; one I’d only seen in my rearview mirror coming to and from Grand Junction over the years. On the town’s tiny main street sits Bread Bar, home of Dram Apothecary, where three magical ladies hosted what will undoubtedly be the first of many Witch & Bitch gatherings.

Shae, Robin and Lynn, the three women who brought Witch & Bitch to life, are herbalists, healers, concocters, foragers, business women, and, among many other things, teachers. This weekend I was honored to be part of their first group of students. What an amazing, strong congregation of women. We foraged in the hills, made healing teas, got our hands in the dirt, imbibed in nourishing food and drink (cocktails are nourishing!), and became intimate with the powers of plants through sight, touch, and smell. Their lessons are still buzzing in my head after coming down the mountain back into the city, and like all good teachers, Lynn, Shae and Robin have helped me see the world in a new light. My eyes are open to new things around me, to things the earth has been doing under my nose, quietly, powerfully. I am very much looking forward to the next one.
