Learn About Cherokee Seed Bank and Ethnobiology in Claremore!

0

The Rogers County Master Gardeners invite you to a free seminar on Ethnobiology from Cherokee Cultural Biologist Feather Smith-Trevino. It will be held Monday, August 20, at 7p at the Rogers County Building (416 S. Brady).

Feather Smith-Trevino has worked for the Cherokee Nation as a Cultural Biologist since 2015. She takes care of the Heirloom Garden and Native Plant Site as well as the Seed Bank.

The Seed Bank distributes seeds to Cherokee citizens. These heirloom crops represent rare genetics that are tied solely to the Cherokee people. After the preservation of heirlooms was underway, it was natural to add a variety of culturally important native plants to the site as well. These plants represent centuries of Cherokee cultural and agricultural history.

For more information, please call John Haase at 918-923-4958. This free event is open to the public and is sponsored by Master Gardeners Association of Rogers County and OSU Extension Rogers County.
