In Love With A Plant: a demisexual plantsexual take on polyamory and love"
Why should we fall in love with natural resources? Why should we fall in love with ancient seeds? Why should we fall in love with water and other greater than than human creatures? In this session we will talk about falling in love with the non-humxn. Ecosexuality is not new, Indigenous peoples and their desendants have created connection and deep love with our ecosystem and non-humxn-animals since millennia. This session is a feminist Queer demisexual plant-loving take on love and the radical power of exploring relations beyond human. Come ready to learn about plants and botanicals to support us through it all!
