About the event
“Fire Cider is a popular traditional herbal remedy freely made, produced, shared and sold by hundreds of herbalists across the world. Many people have their favorite version… The remedy is used to help warm up the body, and generally acts a stimulant and antimicrobial used during cold and flu season.
Recently, a large company decided to trademark the name and is forcing small businesses who have made and sold it to change their product names... Many people feel this is a dangerous precedent... and this led to a filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office asking that the mark be deemed generic. Until the company agrees to freeing Fire Cider from trademark restriction, a boycott of their product has been launched.”
Learn to make fire cider! This is an age-old popular, generalized and variable recipe that is being dangerously hoarded by manipulative capitalists. Sharing skills is an intrinsic part of rewilding. Nobody owns common knowledge! We’ll cover the basic nutritional components of popular ingredients, share a few recipes, chop some veggies, and concoct some medicine in community. $20 suggested donation includes all required tools, materials, a flight of kombucha from Root Wild Kombuchery, a tip for the bartender, a jar of Trademark-Free fire cider to take home, and a $10 donation towards the “Free Fire Cider” legal fund. (Limit: 12 students)
