Verbena Fields Wildtending Days
Join us each month at Verbena Fields to learn about TEK keystone native plants and how to help restore them to revive native ecosystem habitats.
Event Details: Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) refers to the generations of observations, learning, and wisdom that indigenous peoples have about their lands and ecosystems. Ali Meders-Knight, a local Mechoopda Tribal member and Master Traditional Ecological Practitioner, is partnering up with Raphael DiGenova, a local seed collector and nursery magician, and Camp Fire Restoration Project, to bring you a monthly TEK Wildtending Plant walk. Come learn about TEK, the 10 year indigenous-led restoration project at Verbena Fields, native plants and their cycles throughout the year, and how we can be better stewards of these plants and these lands. The event will be held the last Tuesday of the month from 4-6pm. Times may change with the season.
Participants are encouraged to bring water, gloves, hat, close-toed shoes, notebook, and pen. Please note there are no bathrooms on site.
Participants are also encouraged to volunteer with Ali at Verbena Fields every Friday from 10am-1pm to support the continued restoration of that land.
You can also DONATE HERE to support the ongoing work of Camp Fire Restoration Project and this walk.
