  • 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Online: Zoom and In Person


Registration is closed

Co-sponsored with The Nation's Capital Wild Ones. 

Speaker: Tama Wong

Tama Wong will talk about gardening in the Anthropocene, a time of change and where the imprint of human activity has reached all corners of the earth. She will make a case for wild gardens, managed for diversity and resilience, but not manicured control. The wild garden becomes a place not only to enjoy, but also to harvest weeds and intentional plantings for cooking, flower arrangements, teas, and celebrations.

THE IN PERSON OPTION IS FULL. YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE ZOOM OPTION TO GET THE ZOOM LINK. We can accommodate 300 people in Zoom. This Presentation will NOT be recorded.

In Person registration limit has been increased. Environmental Center at Glenstone, Potomac

Tama is a wild food forager, author, and gardener. She supplies some of New York City's most prestigious restaurants and has a deep knowledge of wild produce that informs her impeccable taste in their flavors and uses.
