  Thursday Forum - Plant Stewardship in the 21st Century: Sowing the Seeds of Change
   
Thursday, April 06, 2017; 8:45 AM - 11:30 AM  See other Dates
Coe College

Over the course of the month, Education Professor Nancy Hayes will explore the history of plants as medicine and the known medicinal properties of plants, as well as seed saving and other practices and policies that will help ensure a robust global botanical legacy for future generations. The first lecture will focus on why plant preservation matters so much today and how we can act individually and collectively in response to the current condition of our world’s botanical resources. The second lecture will describe the history of plants as medicine and the how and why of medicinal plant practices today, from both holistic and commercial perspectives. The third lecture will focus on past and present efforts to save seeds as part of our agricultural heritage, and the fourth lecture will conclude the series with a discussion of viable approaches, both local and global, to active plant stewardship in the 21st century. Most Thursday Forum lectures are held in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall on the Coe campus. Each session begins with registration and refreshments from 8:45-9:15 a.m., followed by the class until 11:30 a.m. The class meetings blend lecture, use of media such as film and music, and discussion.
