Maple, New Hampshire’s Medicine of Connection

Presenter: Damian Costello

Few things evoke the identity and values of New Hamphire more than maple syrup. It also bridges the many divisions facing our communites. In this presentation, Damian Costello explores how the practice of maple sugaring connects us to the land, our ancestors, and all that surrounds us. In conversation with Robin Wall Kimmerer’s bestselling Braiding Sweetgrass, he suggests that sugarmaking—which is informed by indigenous wisdom—is a communal medicine of connection that teaches mutual reciprocity with the land.

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of bringing the humanities to your community!

There is a snow date of 2/15/2024 if necessary.
