We all rely on plants for food, shelter, even the air we breathe. For some, though, plants are more than sustenance. They are a calling. In The Earth in Her Hands, Jennifer Jewell, host of public radio's award-winning national program and podcast Cultivating Place, introduces us to 75 inspiring women who are making important contributions in everything from botany to floral design, landscape architecture to farming, and herbalism to food justice. Rich with personal stories and insights, these portraits reveal a devotion that transcends age, locale, and background, reminding us of the profound role of green growing things in our world--and our lives. Jennifer's first book, The Earth in Her Hands, 75 Extraordinary Women Working in the World of Plants, is due out in early 2020 from Timber Press.
Book signing and reception will follow the lecture.
