Presenter: Jared Rosenbaum

Native edible and medicinal plants can be integrated into landscape gardens and ecological restorations to create habitats that support both people and their local ecosystems. We'll consider a habitat-based approach to stewarding edible and medicinal plants that translates to home landscapes, parks, and farms. Field botanist, native plant grower, and restoration practitioner Jared Rosenbaum asks whether we can honor native ecosystems and cultural lifeways as we restore habitats that support people, other animals, and native plants alike.
