Reviews

PROJECT MUSE - Article: Nursery Manual for Native Plants: A Guide for Tribal Nurseries, Volume One, Nursery Management (Review) by Jim Borland

"Aimed specifically at the numerous and geographically diverse Native American audience, this manual is structured well enough to serve all plant growers, no matter their clan, nationality, or societal affiliation.

Intent alone probably differentiates this manual from any other standard nursery manual. Instead of profit, a Native American nursery may place a high value on the perpetuation of local heritage, culturally important plants, food plants, community education, and traditional ecological knowledge."
