Throughout history the cultivation and processing of plants have had a major, ongoing impact on our civilization.   Paul and Melinda Carmichael are founders and current Directors of Beech Creek Botanical Gardens and Nature Preserve. They will share with us unusual revelations about both common and uncommon plants as they weave strands of economic, political and industrial history. Having been in the horticulture profession for over 37 years, both are fervent in educating others about plants and the environment.   Prepare to be amazed and enlightened as these passionate plant lovers share their horticultural expertise and fascinate us with how plants have affected our world!
