A Bio Regenerative Project
THE JOURNEY TO UN-ABANDONED
Unabandoned began as a dream of the future, brought on by laments of the past, and a vision of growing in the here and now. Whilst aspiring to self healing there was a magnetic knowing that self and natural world could only heal together. By participating with nature, and allowing the natural world to reflect upon us, there became a notion for growth in the urban cityscape that we dwell.
In tune with where we are rooted, the initiative began with three vacant lots, abandoned in each sense of the word. Those lots have become the lush gardens gleaming from the urban terrain, and have expanded to multiple locations across Youngstown's South Side. Medicinal herbs, fruits, vegetables, native trees and plants, and fields of flowers are free to be themselves as they enhance the native ecosystem, which we are so graciously welcomed into.
Our products reflect a duality that is a thriving relationship between the effortless and intricate. The process of growing in terms of location, resources, and know- how is one of many facets. The medicine of plants is vast and complex, with variations based on locale. traditions, practices, and other learned disciplines. However, the final products retain the effortless nature of plant medicine.
