  • “Net-works” (Botanical Garden)

    ActivitiesBotanical GardenEducationNature

    The September Inspire Speaker Series brings "Net-Works," a sustainability focused program of Interface. It's not just about beach cleanup, though that is a vital piece. Net-Works is also helping the villagers establish new financial opportunities by providing an additional income stream as well as supporting the creation of community banking.
    Net-Works is the first step in creating a truly restorative loop in carpet tile production, cleaning up oceans and beaches while also creating financial opportunities for some of the poorest people in the world.
    Over 660 million people on the planet depend upon the oceans to support their livelihood. But year after year, pollution in our waters and beaches gets worse.
    Pioneering a model of inclusive business, Interface has partnered with the Zoological Society of London, yarn producer Aquafil, and Project Seahorse to build a closed loop around sourcing raw materials for our carpet, and get us one step closer to achieving Mission Zero. The class is Wednesday, September 10 from 6pm to 7pm. The cost per person is $10 for USGBC Louisiana members and $15 for members of the public. This event takes place in the Garden Study Center in the New Orleans Botanical Garden.

  • “From the Amazonian Rainforest to New Orleans Voodoo: Plants of Power, Magic, and Medicine”

    ActivitiesBotanical GardenEducation

    The book signing and registration begins at 10am and the lecture begins at 11am.

    The event is in the Pavilion of Two Sisters in the New Orleans Botanical Garden in City Park. The event is $25 per person. For more information call 483-9473.

    From the ethnobotanical perspective, New Orleans is THE most tropical American city. Cotton, sugarcane, coffee, bananas, opium and other tropical plants played key roles in everything from slavery, the Civil War, the United Fruit Company or to the invention of jazz. A sometimes overlooked link between the Crescent City and the tropics is the Slave Rebellion in Haiti that massively influenced New Orleans history and culture. "My folks was all Frenchmens," said Jelly Roll Morton. And so they were - but by way of Haiti. This lecture starts in the most primordial of all tropical wildernesses: the Amazon rainforest. It focuses on the Indians who are the masters of plant knowledge and healing. It then travels north to central Suriname, where we meet the most African of the Afro-American diaspora. We then use this Amerindian - AfroAmerican-European matrix to better understand the New Orleans of old - and to make predictions on how these Amazonian plants can and will be used in the future.

    Featuring Dr. Mark Plotkin: Renowned Ethnobotanist and Bestselling Author of ‘Tales of a Shaman’s Apprentice’
    For over 30 years, Dr. Mark J. Plotkin has worked with and learned from the ancient shamans in the rainforests of Central and South America, providing him with incomparable knowledge of healing plants and shaman traditions. He formerly served as Research Associate in Ethnobotanical Conservation as the Botanical Museum of Harvard University, Director of Plant Conservation at the World Wildlife Fund and Vice President of Conservation International in Washington, D.C.. Mark Plotkin currently serves as President of the Amazon Conservation Team, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting biological and cultural diversity of the tropical rain forest.
