  • UG

In this summer intensive, the Longhouse Ethnobotanical Garden –– with its various habitat and theme areas –– will be our primary teacher. Each day we will explore the garden with different foci including food, medicine, pollinators, and dyes.  We will identify plants in their late summer expressions, and expand our relationships with them through tending the garden, maintaining a nature journal, reading, and hands-on workshops. This program is suitable for students interested in environmental education, health studies, plant studies, sustainability, ethnobotany, herbalism, and horticulture.
