“All About Yucca” = ‘Akoo & Refocusing Your Cultural Lens with Craig Torres

Saturday, July 7th, 10AM – 2PM

Join Craig Torres, a Tongva descendant, to learn more about using native plants. For thousands of years the Tongva of the Los Angeles basin relied on native plants for food, clothing, shelter and medicine. The reciprocal relationships between plants, animals and humans enabled the plants to continue on for future generations. Craig will talk about the uses of Akoo, Yucca (Hesperoyucca whipplei)

Come learn about all about Yucca, (Hesperoyucca whipplei) ‘Akoo’ traditional and contemporary uses and how this “relative” enabled the Tongva to survive on the landscape for hundreds of generations providing food, fiber, utilitarian items, and many other gifts.

Get ready to refocus your cultural lens and renegotiate your relationship with the NATURE.

Craig will discuss proper protocol and etiquette for harvesting as well as growing natives in your own landscape. Native plants will be available for sale! Fee: $20/person ($10 for BTN members). Proceeds go directly to habitat restoration projects. Register below. Prepayment required. Bring a lunch and folding chair (as chairs are limited at the BTN Nursery).
