Book Club: Braiding Sweetgrass

April 9, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Braiding Sweetgrass cover

Join the discussion of Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

Excerpt from Goodreads.com: As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these lenses of knowledge together to show that the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings are we capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learning to give our own gifts in return.
