vol. 15  |  THE FLORA ISSUE

Flora: the plants of a particular region, listed by species and considered as a whole.

In New England, our flora is as varied as the landscape. The rocky coastline is brushed with goldenrod yellow while kelp and dulse fill the ocean depths. Up north, white and red pines mask the mountains while wild mushrooms and ferns sprout up along the trail ways.

How has this diverse flora shaped the region? How has it influenced our communities, our artists, our shops, farms and the region's dinner table?
