Lara Pacheco is a Taíno, Latinx mamita that believes that our collective liberation is accessed through decolonizing ourselves by weaving into the web of ancestral medicine.  lara directly works through this realm with plants, fungi, music and dance. When not caring for her family, land, and all creatures, lara runs Seed and Thistle Apothecary, an educational resource, and co-runs the Seasonal Wellness Clinic that works to provide access to herbal medicine and massage for marginalized communities, and Brown Girl Rise, a youth empowerment program for young femmes of color.
