PLANTED: Stories From Manitoba's Natural World

What made Nadia Monaco follow a trail of king bolete mushrooms until she got lost in Manitoba’s Interlake? How did Lindsey Emberley find healing in nature after her infant daughter died? Why does Dave Daniels know exactly where to look and what plants to harvest for his traditional medicines?

Planted is a reminder of the personal and ecological benefits of protecting nature in Manitoba. In the style of creative non-fiction, Kaitlin Vitt shares the stories of eight people who are inspired by nature and have stories to tell because of it. You’ll hear stories of survival, self-discovery, and tradition, with a focus on species native to Manitoba.

These stories show we are all connected — our hands, feet, and bodies touch the Earth every day. This planet, and our province, is worth exploring and protecting.
