Botany X-Files:  Unlocking the Mysteries of Food and Drug Plants                                

July 1-July 22

Ever wonder what plant parts are on your plate, how they developed, or where they came from?  This class is specially designed for the secret botanist in each of us, answering these and other questions about the plants we consume in our daily lives.  The series covers the science and sagas of food plants and those plants we utilize for their bioactivity.  The latter includes herbs and spices, stimulating beverages, medicinal plants and even some potential aphrodisiacs!  This is a hands-on class where you get to play with plants and eat your homework.
