Braiding Sweetgrass Plant Walk - Occidental Campus

Join us for a campus plant walk inspired by Occidental College's 2023 Community Book selection, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

Led by Joel Garcia (Meztli Projects) and professors Gretchen North, Jocelyn Pedersen, this plant walk is an opportunity to learn about and build relationships with the plants on campus and around Fiji Hill. There will be a focus on Native plants, and the way these plants can be used to create inks and dyes. This event is free, all ages, and open to all.
