Annual Jenny Elder Fitch Memorial Lecture: Moveable Gardens and Commensal Tables: Rooting in an Age of Displacement

North Carolina Botanical Garden 100 Old Mason Farm Road, Chapel Hill, NC

Humans have been moving with plants as their traveling companions since the beginning of time. Currently, in a period of impactful and reinforcing industrialization, globalization, and strife known as the Anthropocene, this movement has dramatically escalated in tempo and scale. In this presentation, I will address how remembrance embedded in seeds counters destruction of homelands, fragmentation of habitats, and cultural alienation, and how sanctuary is sought in gardening, cooking, and community building.

Fall is here and this year why not leave your leaves! Leaving your leaves is one way to change some of the forces at work behind the twin problems of the climate crisis and the loss of biodiversity. Leaving your leaves will make your yard a better habitat for birds, fireflies and butterflies. It will enrich your soil, create less stormwater runoff and lessen air and noise pollution. Learn how preserving the leaf litter in your yard is a great thing you can do for your local ecosystems and to increase the enjoyment of nature in your own backyard.
