Did you know milkweed isn’t just for monarchs? With a little knowledge, this native plant is food for humans, too! Though not often considered as edibles, many native plants are wonderful, traditional sources of food. Through storytelling and recipes, presenter Gina Roxas, a member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation and a medicinal garden manager, will invite plant lovers to consider native plants differently when planning their next garden.
