What you'll do

This online experience will focus on learning about natural healing methods that have been used in Haiti for generations. We will start first by walking through three different teas - how to identify the plant, how to brew it, and its medicinal history. During this portion, we invite you to brew a cup of your favorite tea as we dive into a conversation about #plantparenthood. Like many others, we've been using our houseplants as a way to cope during these strange times. We want to take you on this journey with us as we discuss choosing the right plant for your space, which are the best plants for improving air quality, and walk you through an interactive activity, like repotting & propagating a plant together. There will be time set aside to answer any plant-related questions you may have because we are happy to share all that we've learned with you. We've all been staying at home as much as we can but with the power of the internet, we are still able to create a vibrant, thriving community centered around natural healing!

What you'll need:
a steady internet connection (via a smart device or a computer)
a cup of your favorite hot tea
a houseplant of your choice (if you’d like to follow along with the interactive activity)
Other things to note
We know that everyone will be joining from different places. We will try our best to accommodate different internet speeds, etc by speaking clearly and sharing notes, etc throughout the experience.

I am a Haitian-born, Brooklyn-raised linguist who loves to share all things related to Haiti! I come from a family who has worked on the land for many generations. For the past several years, I've hosted over 500 people for the Haitian Tea Party, an experience focused on learning how tea and herbs are used as traditional healing methods in Haiti. As we all cope with the global pandemic of COVID19 we'd like to share some of these healing methods with our guests while also diving into the world of plant parenthood.

I have done many airbnb online experience since covid began, but I think this was my favourite! Wynnie and Winnie are lovely people, who are incredibly enthuesiastic and positive, and also very knowledgeable about both tea and houseplants! This was actually my second time doing their experience, but I learnt a lot of additional things that I didn't pick up on my first time of doing it, and I found the experience very useful for getting practical tips for how to care properly for houseplants. They are both very friendly and approachable, and were very happy to answer questions, as well as being keen to learn about the experiences of me and the other participants. Overall, I thought it was a fantastic experience!

Our experience with Wynnie was nothing short of delightful! Her energy felt kindred and she was very genuine. Her familiarity with tea provided us more comfort with exploring more herbs/roots. The planting segment was knowledgeable as well, with lots of personal insight. Overall a beautiful experience that made us feel mindfully abundant.

Wynnie and Winnie were an absolute pleasure and delight in leading this class today. I am immensely thrilled to have learned how to live sustainably with healing houseplants and Haitian ancestor’s medicinal teas during Covid times. I work remotely from home due to covid as a banker, so this class definitely packed value for its affordable price tag. Practical/easy to use information. Drinking healing tea on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with other wonderful attendees on #airbnbexperiences certainly helps! I truly feel now I can be a worthy parent inducted in the #plantparenthood ! 2 thumbs up!
