Why BIPOC Horticulture Knowledge Matters, from Green-Wood Cemetery

February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- $5

Join our colleagues at Green-Wood Cemetery for this online talk led by Wambui Ippolito, a landscape designer, horticulturist, and graduate of the New York Botanical Garden’s School of Professional Horticulture.

BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) horticulturists’ understanding of plants and nature is often grounded in different perspectives than the institutions in which they work here in the United States. Intentionally or unintentionally, both public and private gardens currently fail to integrate BIPOC expertise and knowledge in their garden operations. How can institutions integrate this knowledge and create healthier work environments?

This conversation is part of our new series of virtual programs about the horticulture and wildlife of Green-Wood, Zooming in on Nature.

Register here.

$5/Free for Green-Wood members, RSVP required.
