Unknown_0.png

Among the garden ways that intrigue me – from my earliest memories to now, are those gardening ways we know about from the first peoples of the world. On Cultivating Place this week we’re joined by with Nick Hernandez, also known as Nick Hummingbird, an indigenous plantsman, educator and advocate from Southern California. His is a strong voice for the seasonal cycles of plants, peoples, and landscapes — for their food, utility, meaning and spirit. Join us!
