HORTICULTURE AS AN ACT OF CONQUEST (ONLINE LECTURE)
Justin Robinson (@countrygentlemancooks)

Why do American yards and gardens look the way they do? How was it decided which plants were desirable? Where did these plants originate and how did they get into U.S. soil? Join Justin (@countrygentlemancooks) as he tackles these questions by analyzing the history of horticulture and how it intersects with colonization, enslavement, and climate change.
