Reclaiming the Honorable Harvest TED Talk (Video)

Are you in need of a little plant wisdom today? Some hope and encouragement, something uplifting and motivating? Please listen to this wonderful Ted Talk by Robin Wall Kimmer. Robin is a botanist, herbalist, author, and member of the the First Nations tribe of Potawatomi. Her book, Braiding Sweet Grass is a best seller and a must read for all herbalists! I had the lovely opportunity to meet Robin at the 2017 International Herb Symposium where she gave an inspirational and uplifting keynote talk.
