Humankind’s position in nature seems to be based on distinguishing ourselves from nature by creating our own environment and managing it with organization and classification. Each thing has its designated place, and plants are no exception. Those we have difficulty to controlling, we place into a category we call weeds.

This is a proposal for us to accept and embrace the „weeds“ in our environment and to stop regarding them as things in the wrong place. The ceremony by the drinking altar is in honour of all of nature’s plants and their different properties and purpose.
