Tania Marien

I see green where others see nothing, hear stories where others hear silence.



I am an independent informal educator who strives to connect people with plants and nature through my programs and projects.



Since 2002 I have encouraged an interest in plants through art, science, and interpretation as the full-time educator, bookseller, and editor at ArtPlantae.  I have led programs at environmental education events, gardens, museums, parks, and conferences.

My current project, The Freelance Condition & Lifelong Learning in Communities, is an investigation into the contributions freelance educators make to lifelong learning.
