Planting Ideas: Human Plant Relationships. A First Friday Event Sponsored by Mill Valley Library April 2014. Attended by over 250 people.
In the modern era, literature and science have generally been seen as separate if not opposite. As it turns out, art and science have more in common than not. In concert with the launch of SeedSmart, the Library’s Seed Lending Library, Mill Valley Library presented a multifaceted conversation with ethnobotanist Jolie Lonner Egert (Go Wild Consulting), poet Amy Glynn (author, A Modern Herbal), watershed consultant Apryl Uncapher (co-author, Creating Rain Gardens), and seed company co-founder N. Astrid Hoffman (The Living Seed Company). Each presenter brought their own perspective to the discussion of the human-plant relationship.
