Returning the Gift: How do we reciprocate the gifts of the plants?
March 24 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$40 – $60
Robin Wall Kimmerer, PhD, Distinguished Teaching Professor and Director, Center for Native Peoples and the Environment
This workshop with Robin Wall Kimmerer, indigenous plant scientist and distinguished teacher, engages participants in exploring the material and cultural gifts of the plants, from ecosystem services, to food, medicine and lessons on how we might live. Through guided observations, readings, and writing, together we will explore how we might reciprocate those gifts, with gifts of our own. Robin is the author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants.
