Verdant Views: Growing Vegetables and Connections

Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Virtual Event

Join us for a deep dive into the Pounder Vegetable Garden at Cornell Botanic Gardens. This garden features sustainable practices you can implement in your own backyard veggie garden, as well as changing educational themes such as Crops of the Americas, Plant Families, and ways to reduce our carbon footprint. The Pounder Garden is also a space where partnerships take root. Host Kevin Moss will welcome Emily Detrick, Director of Horticulture, and Steve Henhawk, Cayuga (Gayogo̱hónǫ), who will discuss the heirloom beans and other crops he is growing here. These plantings will serve to both teach Steve’s students at Cornell about Gayogo̱hónǫ culture and language, and to save seeds for sharing back with indigenous communities who first cultivated these varieties here in the Finger Lakes hundreds of years ago.

Verdant Views is a monthly webinar series, hosted by Kevin Moss of Cornell Botanic Gardens. Each episode focuses on a different topic related to plants, gardens, conservation, and the vital connections between plants and peoples around the world.
