will be discussing (via Zoom)

Braiding Sweetgrass
by Robin Wall Kimmerer






braiding-sweetgrass“Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants” is a meditation on the natural world from a botanist, professor and member of the Potawatomi Nation. What is our relationship with nature? Kimmerer reflects on our stewardship using cultural, scientific and philosophical approaches. This book has the distinction of having been on the New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times Best Seller lists.
“Robin Wall Kimmerer has written an extraordinary book, showing how the factual, objective approach of science can be enriched by the ancient knowledge of the indigenous people. It is the way she captures beauty that I love the most—the images of giant cedars and wild strawberries, a forest in the rain and a meadow of fragrant sweetgrass will stay with you long after you read the last page.”—Jane Goodall
