Hi , Autumn Equinox is Here!

In This Issue
 
 
Autumn Equinox
Celebrated around the world on Sept 22-24, "equinox" refers to the fact that on this day, night and day are each 12 hours, therefore equal. On the equinox, the sun rises directly east and sets directly west. In the Northern hemisphere it is fall equinox and in the Southern hemisphere it is spring equinox. Over time, many earth-based peoples celebrate and share the blessings of the harvest with ciders, wines, and herbs.
Corinna's Corner
Welcome Fall!
 
Hello from the Herbal Homestead
 
Corinna Wood, Director, Red Moon Herbs & Southeast Wise Women
 
What a summer--hot and humid, cooling off at the creek, teaching classes, and enjoying abundance. Now we are enjoying cooler and drier air, harvesting and preserving, and noticing the emerging seasonal changes.
 
MuscadinesFor me, the joys of fall have much to do with food. The muscadine vines (indigenous grape) that I planted five years ago are prolifically bearing fruit on my home railings. We pick them as we walk by The ideal in food production is to put your growing food right in your path--not only do you enjoy the bounty regularly, but you also know exactly when to harvest!
 
And the basil has been a bumper crop again this year, allowing us to process, freeze, and eat literally
Basilgallons of pesto. I'm delighted to report that my family and friends will enjoy pesto on bread and pasta all winter. I was so pleased when I learned years ago that basil has immune enhancing properties. The wisdom of "the best medicine is always through food" comes true again.
 
My life speeds up especially this time of year. We're in the midst of a myriad of details as we celebrate the Wise Woman Tradition during the first weekend in October with over 700 women at the 6th annual Southeast Women's Herbal Conference at in Black Mountain, NC. 
 
It's so gratifying to realize how much we're meeting a need in the Southeast for women to connect with the Wise Woman Ways. Check out these recent articles on why the Wise Woman Tradition makes sense in these economic times. The article, written by Nancy Zampella, can be found on Susun Weed's blog. Here are the links. Stay tuned for the 3rd installment of the article.
 
 
Whether or not you find yourself with us this fall at the conference, have a blessed equinox, as we are called to stand in the midst of both light and dark, summer and winter, expanding and contracting.
 
As always, Green Blessings.
