Native American Sustainable Agriculture
The fellow will collaborate with Logan Museum Director Bill Green to research and write about sustainable agriculture from the perspective of the crops grown by Native people in the Midwest. The work is mostly lab-based, including identification and analysis of archaeological plant remains. In addition, the fellow will grow crops in the field and greenhouse to help build reference collections and meet with local organic growers to plan field experiments with Native crops next year.
