Community Read 2015
Join us as we participate for the second year of the Community Read sponsored by Longwood Gardens. This year the Community Read is expanded to include a children’s title. Community Reads are intended to encourage people to pick up a good book and start conservation about a specific topic.
We invite you to read with us Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Kimmerer. Together with Longwood Gardens, local libraries, and community partners, we will explore the book’s ideas about the importance of our relationship with plants, as well as Native American culture and storytelling, and the science of botany. You can place a hold on a copy of the book by visiting the Library Catalog.
The children’s title, The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cheery, gives our youngest garden guests / readers an inspired look at what the kapok tree means to the creatures that live in it—and what rainforests mean to the world’s ecology.
