Botanist and writer Robin Wall Kimmerer joins host Sandra Laronde as part of the Wisdom Keepers Series that will illuminate our collective need for interdependence and connection at a time of crisis and injustice.
Her best-selling book, Braiding Sweetgrass, deftly argues that the regenerative capacity of Mother Earth will help create the conditions needed for renewal. Her work makes a poignant case for cultures of ‘regenerative reciprocity’. As a global pandemic intensifies, her wisdom is more timely and relevant than ever.
