Enlightenment Wines Meadery and Pioneer Flora are collaborating in the cultivation of a botanical library of significant, rare and medicinal plants. Located on the rooftop of EWM's tasting room, Honey's, in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the garden features essential species of various healing traditions,

such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Indigenous American, Mexican, European and Caribbean. The library serves as a creative hub that centers around the discussion of plant knowledge and mead-adjacent topics including herbal medicine, fermentation, experimentation, and plant lore.
