Rahm, Jrène – Environmental Education Research, 2018
How can we 'desettle' the colonial discourse and worldview of botanical gardens and its practices in teaching about plants? How can we move towards engaging deeply with who we are and think we are in relation to place, land, and the world, grounded in an intricate sense of harmony? How can we move our work in botanic gardens beyond regarding land,…

The threshold concepts identified in this study provide focal points for a curriculum…
