My name is Spencer Woodard, a northern California native, thirty-five years old.

I am interested in the history of human relationships with plants and landscapes and how the ever-changing state of these relationships has affected the ways in which our species interacts with and influences larger ecological systems in our midst.

This weblog follows my global work and travels, focusing on plants, ethnobotany, agroforestry, agroecology, regenerative agriculture, traditional agriculture & land management systems, and related news and current events.
