Art from the Forest


Meeting Description:

Nontimber forest products include plants, lichens and mushrooms used for specialized art and craft practices: basketmaking, fiber dyeing, and more.  Artisans who gather and use these species have specialized knowledge of their micro-habitats and require certain qualities in the material they use.  Allaire Diamond M.S., Conservation Ecologist with the Vermont Land Trust, will discuss a variety of species used by master artisans and the unique opportunities for landowners to foster these species on their land and build relationships with artisan-gatherers.
