East Tennessee Native Cultigen Seminar

06:00 pm - 04/19/2017

@ Beardsley Farm

1719 Reynolds St
Knoxville TN  37921



CAC Beardsley Community Farm will be hosting Dr. Kandace Hollenbach during Earth Week to give a lesson on sustainability. Dr. Hollenbach is a professor at the University of Tennessee who has researched indigenous people of East Tennessee in studying their ways of interaction, land use, settlement, hunter-gatherer techniques, and the shift from foraging to food production. She is the head of Subsistence Unit, Archaeological Research Laboratory and has been awarded for Excellence in Southeastern Archaeology.

This lesson in sustainability will focus on the early cultivation of plants from at least 3,500 years ago including amaranth, squash, goosefoot, maygrass, little barley, sunflower, and marshelder. Historic peoples of East Tennessee produced edible seeds for harvest in both late spring and fall, and edible greens during the summer. Come and learn about strategies of early horticulturalists and how we can integrate native plants of East Tennessee into our sustainable agriculture practices.

This event will be free and held at CAC Beardsley Community Farm. All are welcome!
