Curated Conversations: Cultivating in the North
August 16, 2016
Plants are crucial for cultivating wellness in the North, where access to locally grown foods and medicines can be limited. From urban foraging to hothouse gardening and travelling food forests, there is increasing interest in the health, cultural, economic and ecological benefits of local and traditional plants. Polar Lab Artist-in-Residence Mary Mattingly and other invited speakers explore creative strategies for processing plants for food and medicine that support thriving and sustainable ecological communities. Included with admission, which is half price during the museum's Friday night series Polar Nights.
