Date: 1/26/2014

Description:
 ROBIN KIMMERER, SUNY-ESF Professor and author of the award-winning book Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses.
She will discuss her new book “Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants.”
The main idea of her book is that "the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the world. Once we begin to listen for the languages of other beings, we can begin to understand the innumerable life-giving gifts the world provides us and learn to offer our thanks, our care, and our own gifts in return."
