Food of Our Roots Fridays
Fridays May 28 through August 25, 2013
Included with Garden admission

Food connects us all. Beyond providing basic nourishment, food can spark memories, inspire creativity, expand our horizons and bring us together. Travel the globe each Friday and trek into the Garden with a Garden Docent to experience first-hand some of the global food plants of significance. From broadening perspectives about popular foods like chocolate and coffee to shining a deserving light on internationally important food crops like cocoa and cassava, the Friday line-up of food plant tours will transport you to far-away places while increasing appreciation of how plants feed our world.
