John Forti, nationally recognized garden historian, ethnobotanist, and heirloom specialist, will be discussing his book The Heirloom Gardener: Traditional Plants & Skills for the Modern World. Forti wrote this book for gardeners who want to deepen their knowledge and improve life for families, pollinators, and wildlife in their own backyards. As he describes the book on his website,, “It is a love poem to the earth; a map to the art of living intentionally and a guidepost for environmental gardeners and artisans. It unearths old-ways, storied plants, and artisanal life skills; like seed-saving, herbalism, foraging, distillation, ethnobotany, and organics which contribute to a new 21st century arts and craft movement.”
