This class will provide a holistic understanding of what it takes to bring sustenance from field to fork. Special attention will be given to how understanding patterns within the plant world can allow one to demystify the green wall and begin to have confidence in the usefulness and abundance of plant resources all around us. In the words of Henry Thoreau “The woods and fields are a table always spread”.
