Did you know plants had placentas? I sure didn’t. These green little beings are coming way closer to us vertebrates then I expected! Plant placentas provide nutrition to the seed (or ovule), which is found inside the ovary, or carpel. The placenta is connected to the seed through a short filament, very much like an umbilical cord. Who would have thunk?
Born and raised in Montreal, as a teenager I was turned on to wilderness survival skills. Since then, I have attended the Tom Brown Jr. Tracker School, as well as the Wilderness Awareness School in Duvall, WA, where I Participated in their year long residential program, as well as their second year teaching apprenticeship, and tracking intensive. I have now returned home, eager to share my passions for wild foods and wild crafts in the city.
