Are you patiently waiting for Spring? Ugh, Same! While you wait, read Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. The audio version is ::chef’s kiss::
Her work is a fantastic intersection of science, spirituality, activism, and indigenous wisdom. If you are a Madison, WI resident…I discovered that she was once a professor at UW and lived in the cottage at the Arboretum as a caretaker for some time. This read is surely to quell the thirst for spring air, so dive in and enjoy.
A poetic weaving of scientific observation and experiences that paint ideas challenging capitalism and colonialist perspectives.
Her nephew is the talented Zambonifunk. Last year he tweeted her essay on the Serviceberry; which inspired us to plant our very own on Arbor Day in 2021. (It currently has the cutest little buds waiting to pop open!)
