Plants produce food for most of life on Earth. Our understanding of plants is rapidly changing as we discover the complexity of how plants communicate and live in community. As humans, we have a role and responsibility in nurturing plant life. This workshop will discuss some of the latest science, the ecological partnerships to cultivate in your work with plants, design principles you can use in organizing plants into communities, and top tips for supporting plant life during climate change.
