STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Berkshire Botanical Garden, 5 West Stockbridge Road, Stockbridge, Mass., presents Northeast Ethnobotany 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 16 and Sept. 23. Plants shape our lives in many ways: they provide food, fiber and medicine among other uses. This two-part class, led by ethnobotanist and ecologist Drew Monthie, will explore some of the Indigenous and European ethnobotanical practices of the Northeastern US and their historical context. The phytochemistry of plants (their chemical constituents) and their use as medicine will also be a topic of exploration, along with the ethics of Traditional Ecological Knowledge. The cost of two classes is $160 for non-members and $145 for members. For information, visit or call 413-298-3926.
