"Tell me of what plant birthday a man takes notice, and I shall tell you a good deal about his vocation, his hobbies, his hay fever, and the general level of his ecological education."

(A. Leopold, A Sand County Almanac, Prairie Birthday Essay, 1949)

Why "Prairie Birthday" ?

“During every week from April to September there are, on the average, ten wild plants coming into first bloom.  In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.  No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.  He who steps unseeing on May dandelions may be hauled up short by August ragweed pollen; he who ignores the ruddy haze of April elms may skid his car on the fallen corollas of June catalpas.  Tell me of what plant birthday a man takes notice, and I shall tell you a good deal about his vocation, his hobbies, his hay fever, and the general level of his ecological education” (Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac, Prairie Birthday Essay, 1949).

Reconstructed prairie on the Farm allows us the privilege of celebrating wild plant birthdays!
