Native edible and medicinal plant species can be integrated into gardens and ecological restoration projects to create habitats that support (and include) humans as part of local ecosystems. We’ll consider stewarding edible and medicinal plant species in native habitats such as riparian corridors and glades and discuss how a habitat-based approach translates to yards, parks, and farms. We’ll explore the prospect of changing our foodways to patterns that favor native diversity, rewarding restoration and stewardship. This program is part of the Mt. Cuba Lecture Series.
This program takes place online on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.
About the Instructor:
Field botanist, native plant grower, and restoration practitioner Jared Rosenbaum, author of Wild Plant Culture: A Guide to Restoring Edible and Medicinal Native Plant Communities asks whether we can honor native ecosystems and lifeways as we restore habitats that support humans, other animals, and native plants alike.
