AT: ELA 5th Annual Ecological Plant Conference
December 4, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm$119 – $139
Plants nurture our bodies and souls, and have done so for millennia. Innovative tools and interactive collaborations will ensure that this online conference provides participants with an engaging and inspiring experience.
With each change of season, our deep relationship with nature renews us and lifts our spirits. But this year with COVID threats and uncertainties, reconnecting with nature has taken on more significance than ever.
On the most basic level, plants nurture our bodies and souls. Our relationship with plants, however, is more complex than simply food and survival. For millennia, plant-based medicines have been used for healing and time spent in the forest or garden has been recognized for its ability to reduce stress while improving health and well-being.
On December 4th, we invite you to spend a day reconnecting with familiar plants, learning about new plant options, exploring garden insects, and reconsidering our relationship to plants. Five experts will invite us to examine different attributes, uses, and values of plants and the insects that inhabit our gardens.
On December 4, join five experts to explore our evolving relationships with plants and ecosystems:
Dan Jaffe Wilder – How to Grow Food Anywhere
Nadia Ruffin – Garden Insects: Good Bug? Bad Bug? Who’s Who and What Do They Do?
Uli Lorimer – Native Species, Hybrids, Selections and Cultivars
Abra Lee – Power to the Trees
Rebecca McMackin – Pollinator Ecology
