Podcast Show 154: How Community Gardens Help People Grow

As herbalism is the medicine of the people, gardening is the medicine of the community. When we come together to nurture the plants, inevitably we find ourselves connecting more deeply.

Today, we’re talking to Plaedo, co-founder of Eugene Avant Gardeners, poet, musician, activist, and peace officer for the Downtown You Initiative about crating community in the garden and beyond.

Be sure to visit the Practical Herbalist website for recipes and further information on the herbs discussed in this podcast. Real Herbalism Radio podcast show notes always include a list of links or go to www.thepracticalherbalist.com and use the handy search engine at the top of the page.

Herbs We Mentioned

Plaedo

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.
