Linda and Jiling discuss the magic of native prairies, the little that remains, and what we can do about it. Learn about Linda’s inspiring food sovereignty work with indigenous youth, and how to cultivate rich long-term reciprocal relationships with our plant and human relatives. Understand how pipelines and other extractive industries negatively impact plant nations. Walk the land with a greater appreciation for the food and medicine underfoot and all around.
