Tea — A Story Steeped in History will be presented by Brenda Sullivan, Horticulturist and Horticultural Therapist. This event will be held online.
Learn the fascinating history and controversies surrounding one of the world’s most important plants, Camelia sinensis. Responsible for the world’s most consumed man-made beverage, tea is an integral part of most world cultures and contains many properties enabling its use for healing, meditation and stimulation. But while its caffeine helped inspire the Age of Enlightenment, tea has a dark side, including slavery and indentured servitude, and revolts like the Boston Tea Party. Prepare your favorite cup and join Brenda for this fascinating virtual journey.
Join us for talks and workshops highlighting sustainability, women’s influence in horticulture and the healing power of plants during this monthly speaker series.
