6:00 Master Gardener Banquet with speaker Verna Gates

Wildflower Folklore - In an old Indian legend, an eagle cut out a piece of the sky to make a flower. Today those bites can still be seen, helping people identify the chicory. Before general literacy, our ancestors needed ways to learn how to identify the plants essential to their survival. These ancient memory games are delightful stories that teach in the old tradition, through stories.
