The Apotropaic Garden is a new celebration of the magick and mythology of plants reputed to ward off evil and misfortune. This project began long ago as conversations with frequent collaborators The Dark Exact and Laurel Witting. It felt like the right time to cultivate some community strength and joy, and set some intentions around deflecting harm and protecting the vulnerable. So if you’d like to join us in making art to celebrate the protective and healing powers of plants, just post your creations on Instagram with the hashtag #TheOtherLanguageOfFlowers. There are no rules and no deadlines, and all mediums (from paintings to poems to spells) are welcomed. Let’s make a whole (virtual) apotropaic garden of protective flora to ward off evil!
