Details of swap
This swap is open to all those with an appreciation for Herbalism! Participants may choose to create gifts based on the culinary, medicinal, therapeutic, and/or cosmetic uses of plants, as well as any that may be related to an herbalist’s lifestyle. There are plenty of ideas possible!
There is no point system that must be followed. This will hopefully encourage participants to dedicate their full potential and energy to each gift. While efforts can be made between partners to avoid a largely unbalanced exchange, it is important to understand and accept that such outcome may occur regardless.
As mentioned previously, there will be a maximum of 20 participants for this round. This is not meant to exclude others who may be interested in joining but to make my first experience as an organizer more manageable. I personally also enjoy more intimate groups to large ones but am willing to remove the limit for future rounds should there be a need.
If you would like to participate, please complete and submit the following questionnaire to me, dreadlocklove. Please include “The Way of Herbs – An Herbalism Swap” in the subject line.Questionnaire
