Alexis Nikole Nelson, is a forager and an outdoor educator using her platform to yell, sing and celebrate all the edible plants hiding in plain sight!

Best known on social media as The Black Forager, Alexis reframes the world of food, asking us to consider tastefully satiating and environmentally sustainable food choices. She also peels back historical layers on African American and Indigenous food traditions that have traditionally been repressed.

We invite you to listen to her foraging journey, as well as her lessons on wild food options that empower others to have greater self-sufficiency in a world where food justice is a need.

This event will also be livestreamed. Register and join by Zoom.

This event is co-sponsored by The Miller Worley Center for the Environment, Willits-Hallowell Conference Center, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the Division of Student Life, the Office of Community and Belonging, the Betty Shabazz Cultural Center, and the Botanic Gardens.
