GARDEN STATES 2021

A Forum for Cultivating Ethnobotanical Plant Knowledge and Community

Welcome plant enthusiasts

We invite you to join us at the Garden States botanical conference for three days of ethnobotanical knowledge sharing on plants, fungi and the environment. Our program will explore relationships between humankind and plants, including gardening, conservation and sustainability, culture, art, spirituality, philosophy, research and politics. Garden States is designed to encourage community building around medicinal plants, research, and psychedelic culture.
 
Get your hands dirty and learn from the experts on how to grow and share ethnobotanical plants. Participate in community-lead learning and meet like-minded botanical folk from across Australia.
 
The main conference will be on Friday, December 3rd, and Saturday, December 4th. On Sunday, December 5th, we are currently planning to host an informal community element in the afternoon. The community element will involve a plant meet and a book swap in an outdoor space at the same Springvale venue. There is also a possibility that we will provide additional online content on the Sunday that will be accessible remotely, to permit us to respond to any limitations of COVID-19.
 
The Garden States conference will have multiple stages hosting simultaneous presentations, some live streaming elements as well as a bustling, ethnobotanical marketplace. We hope you can attend this special event. Join us in planting seeds for earth, body, and mind.

ABOUT  ENTHEOGENESIS AUSTRALIS

img

Entheogenesis Australis is a charitable, educational organisation established in 2004. We provide opportunities for critical thinking and knowledge sharing on ethnobotanical plants, fungi, nature and sustainability.

Mission Statement - Statement seeds for earth, body, and mind. 

Statement of Purpose - Entheogenesis Australis exists to enhance the Australian natural environment by: 

E – Encouraging the propagation, cultivation, conservation, preservation and sharing of plants and fungi of ethnobotanical significance whilst nurturing botanical environments. 

G – Growing community and developing connections through conversation, events, media and the creative arts, acting as a multidisciplinary nexus for knowledge sharing within the field of Ethnobotany. 

A – Advancing botanical discussion through research, critical thinking, education, creativity, innovation, and awareness about plants, fungi and related compounds with potential beneficial applications for humankind and the natural environment. 



Acknowledgement Of Country

We acknowledge that in Australia, we live and work in a stolen country that was never ceded. This dispossession, from which many in our community continue to benefit materially, causes ongoing trauma to Indigenous people and communities.


We recognise that we benefit from the knowledge and insights of First Nations people, including long relationships with the plants we revere, from around the world. We acknowledge that knowledge of First Nations people has often been obtained disrespectfully.


We encourage all in our community to learn to do our work the "right way", to understand and recognise different cultural protocols, and to show respect.


EGA enthusiastically supports the Uluru Statement, which calls for First Nations' voices in Australian parliament, for treaty, and for truth. We encourage each and all our community to take up the invitation in the Uluru Statement to work through Australia's unfinished business.
