Lunchtime Lecture Series for Gardeners

The Historical Museum of South Florida, my favorite local museum, is now offering a lunchtime lecture series called Brown Bag Breaks. This year, some of the one-hour lectures focus on gardening.
July 1
Historic Herbs-Theater
Miguel A. Cisneros of the Redland Fruit and Spice Park and the Redland Evening Herbal Society shares an interactive presentation on various herbs, their medicinal uses and what to plant at home to relieve what ails you. Additionally, sharing her knowledge of the historic use of herbs in Florida’s prehistory will be Dr. Michelle Williams, Director of the S.E. Region Public Archaeology Network.

September 2
South Florida Gardening Then
Join the Miami Herald’s guru Georgia Tasker for two presentations that show us how growing and gardening have shaped our heritage. Our history is filled with famous Floridians who changed our habitat by sharing and collecting plants and exchanging them with each other, changing the landscape of Florida forever.

October 7
South Florida Gardening Now
With water concerns and climate change in mind, we take a look at the future of South Florida gardening in a brand new light.
