In this photo you can see the new delicate sprouts of sacred (or traditional) tobacco and jerusalem artichoke. Fun fact, the jerusalem artichoke has no relationship to jerusalem and it's not an artichoke! The jerusalem artichoke is a species of sunflower native to North America known for its delectable edible tubers. Yum!

Spring has arrived in the Schoharie Valley, and it’s the perfect time to address our role as land stewards and take action that will benefit Museum visitors and the surrounding ecosystem. We plan on transforming our outdoor learning spaces through a comprehensive approach rooted in sustainability practices. Donations to this campaign will enable the following:

Biodiversity Development:
We plan to re-introduce a number of native plants to the nature park and gardens surrounding the museum to enrich the natural landscape. Donations allow us to purchase seedlings, plants, mulch, fertilizer, and other necessary supplies.

Erosion Prevention:
The Museum’s hilly landscape adds to its beauty but is vulnerable to erosion. Erosion washes away rich topsoil and depletes the land of critical nutrients. To guard against erosion, phlox (a low creeping plant) will be planted on select hillsides. The robust roots of phlox lock in topsoil, slowing erosion from wind and rain.

Educational Signage Production and Installation:
To further our educational mission, we aim to have interpretive signs installed throughout our gardens and nature park. These signs will identify prominent plants and introduce visitors to the cultural and symbolic significance these plants have for Haudenosaunee.

Professional Consulting:
Your donation will enable us to consult with botanical experts at Landis Arboretum. Specialized expertise in identifying what plants we have, suggesting what we should introduce, and providing valuable insight on the care and management of our new plantings will insure the long-term success of our 2019 land revitalization project and of your investment.
