In Flower Community is a celebration of community and ecological restoration that took place along Missouri Flat Creek near Downtown Pullman on September 18, 2022, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in a landscape transformed by native plants, music, and poetry. Hosted by EcoArts on the Palouse and WSU’s School of Music and Department of English and with support from Humanities Washington, “In Flower Community: Poems and Musical Improvisations for Native Plants” featured musical works by faculty and students inspired by native plant species focal to the creek restoration. All were invited to move freely about the site and lend their voices to reading the poems featured on botanical signage during the two-hour performance. This event corresponded with the 2022 WSU Common Reading Program selection, Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teaching of Plants and took place on the Grand Avenue Greenway near the footbridge opposite NW Ritchie Street.
