Wild Plant Culture: Restoring Native Edible and Medicinal Plant Communities with Jared Rosenbaum

Learn how to Restore Native Edible and Medicinal Plant Communities with Field Botanist Jared Rosenbaum!

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. Field botanist, native plant grower, and restoration practitioner Jared Rosenbaum asks whether we can honor native ecosystems and lifeways as we restore habitats that support humans, other animals, and native plants alike. The webinar and live viewing party are presented by Phipps Conservatory in partnership with Wild Ones and Garfield Community Farm.
