GOOD READS: BRAIDING SWEETGRASS
In honor of American Indian Heritage Month, I want to recommend Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, by Botanist, professor of plant ecology, and Potawatomi woman, Robin Wall Kimmerer.
During the pandemic I took to walking daily through the forest Iistening to books about our relationship with nature. Learning about plants and trees helped keep me grounded and hopeful amidst these difficult times. I hope you find some time to reconnect with our most precious life-source during this season of gratitude.
