Towa Bi Woh / Barrio Remedios

Towa Bi Woh / Barrio Remedios, a collaboration with Barrios Unidos, provides herbal and plant medicines for our community. Other partners include Colibri Corazon and Feathercatcher Apothecary, as well as other community herbalists and farmers.

Barrios Unidos, based in Chimayo, is an interdisciplinary, inter-generational and inter-cultural community investigating cultural and psychological issues related to addiction and cultural trauma in the Española Valley.

Lupe Salazar of Barrios Unidos does weekly outreach and is offering these remedios to the most vulnerable in our community. Tewa Women United supports this project by dedicating staff time to the collection of herbs and flowers, assisting in making remedios, and inviting support for the project.

We’re collecting roses for remedios!

Roses are powerful for uplifting the heart and emotions. We use roses in our Grief Support remedio for the community through our Towa Bi Woh / Barrio Remedios Project. Your roses will become an offering of medicine to all who are processing grief during these challenging times!

Please contact if you have *roses* to donate.
