You Had Me at Perennial Legume: An Interview with Aubrey Streit Krug at The Land Institute

Publication: HPPR

Author: Jenny Inzerillo

High Plains Morning doesn’t often delve into ethnobotany, but when we do, we make sure the sources are straight out of KANSAS! HPPR thanks teacher, researcher, and writer Aubrey Streit Krug, Director of Ecosphere Studies at The Land Institute in Salina, KS, for her time and insight regarding her work with perennial native plants and their potential as sustainable crops on the High Plains. (Wow, that was a mouthful.) We had a wonderful chat, in advance of her online discussion through West Texas A&M University’s Center for the Study of the American West (CSAW). She discussed a range of topics, including the Land Institute’s work with rosinweedsainfoin, and other common plants of our region that are as tough as the people who live here (which makes them attractive for resisting drought, erosion, and other challenges faced due to climate change).
