Featured Speakers: Carol Davit, Missouri Prairie Foundation, and a representative from The Land Institute

Could native-planted building landscapes help feed our communities? Forty years of plant research and breeding by The Land Institute (Salina, KS) has advanced into global field trials of edible grains TLI has perennialized to grow in the polyculture of a prairie, without fertilizer or pesticides and with minimal energy inputs. TLI recently partnered with Saint Louis University and the Missouri Botanical Garden in a landmark data-gathering effort to further these options to transform agriculture. The Missouri Prairie Foundation, a longtime TLI collaborator, leverages native ecosystem expertise into this mix. Speakers from TLI and MPF will lead a virtual tour of edible prairie potentials. This is Biodiversity for building occupants who eat!
