Verdant Views Plants and Stories of the Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice (occurring this year on Monday, December 21 at 8:30 a.m.) is more than just the “official” start of the winter season. Since ancient times, it has been celebrated by cultures around the world as a sacred, festive time. Plants such as oak, holly, ivy, mistletoe, and evergreens have long been a central part of these celebrations. In this episode of Verdant Views, join host Kevin Moss and his guests Dr. Peter Davies, Cornell Emeritus Professor of Plant Science, and Emily Pratt, curator of the Mullestein Winter Garden, as we explore the natural and cultural history of these plants, and share some seasonal folklore. We’ll also take a look at some of the plants in the Winter Garden collection. This virtual event will take place Friday December 18th at 3:00pm-4:00pm.
