Can we slow down?

I made this sign for a wild plant identification stall I ran at a recent community event.

A huge part of learning to forage is learning to slow down…to observe closely…to ask questions of the environment around and settle down enough to hear the answer. I’m not always good at slowing down…but when I do…my senses awaken and the plants seem lean in towards me.

‘The times are urgent…we must slow down.’ -Bayo Akomolafe
