Activist Book Club

Activist Book Club with Braiding Sweetgrass

Activist's new book club is a way to connect with likeminded women while spending regenerative time deepening your relationship to yourself and our planet. We'll be reading Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer this winter (January-March).

Braiding Sweetgrass has been one of the most-loved books in the eco-conscious community in the past few years. It's a collection of delightful, easy-to-read essays about creating a gratitude-centric relationship between people and planet, drawing inspiration from indigenous people and the author's experience as a native woman and ecologist.

We've designed this virtual book club to be fun and carefree so you can pop in and out as your schedule allows without missing a beat. There are no meetings to attend!

Discussions will take place over Instagram and Facebook, and we'll send you an email update twice a month with all the action so you don't miss a thing.

Sara Tso with Braiding Sweetgrass

"Hi, I'm Sara, the person behind Matchbox Kitchen, a lifestyle blog chronicling my path to living sustainably, from zero waste swaps to parenting and everything in between.

I originally started a baking company offering special occasion cakes made with organic and locally sourced ingredients. After a few years I felt a disconnect from the produce I was using and the path it took to get there. I knew local and sustainably grown were important, but I didn't truly understand why or how.

I took a hiatus from baking and started a year long internship at a beyond organic, regenerative urban farm. After that experience I knew I had a calling beyond wedding cakes; I wanted to show and guide others towards a life lived symbiotically with our planet.

I chose Braiding Sweetgrass because I'm eager and excited to learn more about the Earth from an indigenous perspective, and how we can apply those lessons to deepen our relationship with ourselves and others."
