About this event

Many of us who are passionate about native-plant gardening are not aware of the ways in which the plants of our region have been or are now being used by Native people, nor how central they are to Indigenous culture. Gina Roxas, a citizen of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, will talk about native plants from a Native American cultural perspective.
