Can Plants Talk to Each Other?

Communication doesn’t require sound. Humans and livestock communicate silently all the time. Just think of a teenager rolling his/her eyes at you, or a bull turning sideways, dropping his head and pawing the ground.  It turns out that plants can communicate without sound too, but they don’t use body-language, they use chemical signals. Next time you’re out in the pasture watching your livestock graze, think of what the plants around you might be saying.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
