Celebrating Nature

Broadcast date: 7/26/2018

The San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is the Gem of the Morros, a one of a kind garden dedicated to honoring and preserving our connection with nature. The garden, which started in 1989, is home to a variety of plants and when the master plan is complete, the 150-acre garden will be the only garden of its kind in the United States exclusively devoted to the ecosystems and plants of the five Mediterranean climate regions of the world. 

Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with Lindsey Collinsworth Morgan, Education Director with the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden and Violet Sage Canvanaugh, Chumash Chef and Herbalist, co-chair of the Northern Chumash Tribe and presenter of the Garden’s upcoming “Chumash Kitchen” program, as they will talk about all that they do at the SLO Botanical Garden, including how they emphasize horticulture, education, research, sustainable and fire-safe practices, water conservation, children’s gardens of exploration, culinary demonstrations, life celebration gardens, health and nutrition, storytelling, and the arts.
