Horticulture, History, and Immigrants: Systems Altering this Land

About this event

Join Wambui for this online lecture as she shares how immigrant waves have radically altered America's landscapes. True environmental stewardship in the Anthropocene will occur when horticulturists, architects, and gardeners view themselves, their work, and their plants as migrants moving across the space and time of the evolving American landscape.
