Healthy Community Connections: How Plants Communicate

Healthy plant ecosystems are connected in many ways and through many allies, including through sharing of essential water, minerals, sugars, and more. There is also the expression of warnings to others about pests and disease, and direct defenses against those, with an immune response of phytochemical substances that can also stimulate our own human health. Learn how common permaculture practices can encourage these healthy relationships in our own bodies, gardens, farms and wild places.

Science is catching up to explaining some of the complex beneficial relationships embedded in natural ecosystems, some of these hidden productive exchanges have been revealed, and can be supported by common permaculture practices. Presentation of ideas, discussion, questions and answers shared with participants.
