Jasun “Plaedo” Wellman
Jasun “Plaedo” Wellman is a community organizer, educator, gardener, and artist. In a society where too many people report feelings of disconnection, depression, and disease, Plaedo discovered a practical remedy in gardening. Inspired by the discovery that the simple act of gardening could strengthen communities, increase health and joy, and benefit the environment, he co-founded the Eugene Avant Gardeners, a organization and movement dedicated to cultivating sustainable and resilient food networks. Avant Gardening is an aesthetic and ecological approach to gardening that seeks to cultivate a fun, sustainable culture change to meet the demands of climate change. Plaedo continues to use art and gardening as educating tools aimed at creating productive and flourishing communities.
