Ethnogardening

The ethnobotany class includes work on the Palikir student learning ethnobotanical garden. The garden is now being weed-whacked by the grounds crew at the college. As a result the course has acquired more rakes and hand cultivators and shifted from grass whacking to generalized cleaning.


The class started with a walk-though introduction to the plants in the ethnobotanical garden. Identifying the plants and their uses is the core to the final examination.
