Time: 3:00PM - 5:00PM
Location: Arbor Terrace and Blaksley Library
For its third year, the Wine and Cheese Botanic Lecture Series is bringing together some new and familiar friends for talks about our local ecology and built environment. This year’s topics will include everything from bears to fennel, sustainable building and artful landscaping, to vanishing wild lands and a pictorial history of very our own SBBG. Each lecture begins with delicious appetizers and a tasting and conversation with one of our local sponsoring vintners in the Garden’s arbor terrace. Lecture attendance is limited, so please reserve early. Consider introducing a friend to the Garden and invite them to join you at one or more of these fascinating talks.
