Join the Sustainable Landcare book club each semester to read and talk about a book that showcases new research and teachings of sustainable landcare principles and practices. Our first book is Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Join us on a heartfelt journey to reconnect with our natural world. Participants must obtain and read the book prior to the meeting in order to fully share in the discussion.

The book is available at the link above, or from The Shop at Phipps here.

From the publisher, Milkweed Editions, “As a botanist, the author has been trained to examine nature with the tools of science; as a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our teachers. Here she brings these two lenses together, showing how other living beings offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices.”  Native Plant Landscapes Certificate elective
