Ethnogardening

Midterm ethnobotanical garden gardening. This term I requisitioned a passel of whetstones. The students all managed to sharpen machetes without cutting themselves or each other. I passed the camera off to Mae Felix, she took all the photos except the first two.




Not exactly what one would normally wear when heading out into the garden. Still, if agriculture is to become really popular, glamorizing the field and making it a stylish endeavor is sure to help.


Another smartly dressed student.



Do not let the stylish clothing and accessorization mislead, Roxann knows how to handle a knife.



Maybe a course should be offered, "How to cut down trees without breaking a sweat." Mavrick works behind Roxann.

Chromolaena odorata is called odorata for a reason. The local name for the plant is a reference to a smell that ought not be published in a family-safe blog. Chenniva reacts to the offensive odor.



I can always find an excuse for lecturing. Renselyn Anson in the background, Brenda Kerman, and Permaleen Albert. I am holding a small Clidemia hirta plant in my left hand.


Some are less clueful as to what to do with the knife. I think this was an air dance kung fu thing, but I was not there at that particular time.

When a student has the camera, there are many images captured like this one of Markina.
