A Three Day Forum for Cultivating Ethnobotanical Plants, Research, Knowledge and Community

Welcome plant enthusiasts



Garden States 2022 is a hybrid conference, including keynote presenters David Holmgren, Dr Margaret Ross, Janet Laurence, Renee Harvey, Suresh Muthukumaraswamy, Dr Alison Pouliot, Lynette Wallworth, Snu Voogelbreinder, and luminaries Douglas Rushkoff, Dennis McKenna Ph.D., Mark Pesce, The Seed SistAs, John Seed, and Keeper Trout who are streaming in.

Garden States Conferences are a community meeting point for plants and their custodians. These conferences are part of a not-for-profit initiative designed to explore the intersection of humankind and plants, including botany, gardening, conservation, sustainability, culture, art, altered states, spirituality, philosophy, harm reduction and politics.

Get your hands dirty and learn how to grow and share ethnobotanical plants from the experts. Participate in citizen science and meet like-minded botanical folk from across Australia.

Garden States 2022 is a hybrid conference that takes place over three full days. There are two main ticket types with some variations and discount options. Attendees may choose a 'Streaming Ticket' or an 'In-person Ticket'. Friday the 2nd of December 2022 will be entirely online for all attendees, while Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December will include a community gathering for all in-person attendees, broadcast online for those with streaming tickets and unable to attend in person. All ticket holders will receive a copy of the 2022 conference Journal and after access to the recorded stream to rewatch for four months after the event.

The in-person conference gathering will be composed of around thirty lectures, twelve workshops and five discussion panels that have been curated to help you along the journey to plant seeds for earth, body, and mind.

Garden States 2022 will offer much more than even our most enthusiastic ethnobotanical friends could have hoped. With that in mind, we hope to see you all at this extraordinary event and wish you, your family, and your communities the best over the coming months.

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.

Through our conferences and workshops, we aim to celebrate culture, science, art, politics and community around medicine plants. We aim for this celebration to contribute to the wellbeing of both earth and humankind.

 

Mission Statement - Planting 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.
