This week in the garden – vol 64

 

Summer Book Club-Thursday, August 18, 7:00Pm at the Cottage

Join club members in reading Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants” by Robin Wall Kimmerer.  Highly recommended read by Staci Catron during the Cherokee Garden Club Library tour at the Atlanta History Center. An excerpt from the Amazon review: “Drawing on her life as an Indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices.”
