Meeting Minutes

Coastal Meeting Notes ~ October 28, 2018

1) Coastal Cornucopia is at the Mendo Coast Botanical Gardens this Saturday 10-4pm. The guild is having a booth represented by the inland group but all members can come out and show their support by attending the event (or spreading the word). Ana Victoria asked if anyone would like to join them and welcomes suggestions for activities/demos. I will be coming by and helping as needed but if you have a specific idea – please contact Ana Victoria at lovingthegood@gmail.com

2) December 8th Mendocino Guild Herbal Craft Fair – all guild members (coast or inland) are welcome to participate. Table space is $30 and you can share a table (tables and chairs provided) – come sell your products: medicines, teas, books, fiber art, wreaths, plant crafts, seeds/starts, honey products etc. The guild will have it’s own info table as well. After rental expenses are covered, any profit from table fees or donations go to the guild. As a seller, you can keep your profit or donate a percentage to the guild. It is not too early to start advertising this event and please consider being a vendor.

If you don’t want to sell we need help with set up, clean-up, sign making, poster hanging and also giving a workshop or demo. Get involved in this fun MCHG event at the Caspar community center! For more details or questions email: liz@sisterspinster.net

Pocket flyers for the fair can be distributed by Sakina at the FB indoor winter market. She also suggests the guild has a info table at this market to keep connecting with the public about our vision, needs etc.

3) A Mendocino Street Medicine Clinic is in the making. Liz will be meeting Linda Jo Stern and Faith Simon with their medical team tomorrow at the Presbyterian Church in Mendo to plan how we can work alongside them providing herbal health care to the homeless. Stay tuned for more on this as we will be needing herb medicine donations and help. If you are interested in being part of this please email Karin at karinuphoff@gmail.com
