Nature's Narratives: Weeds: In Defense of Nature's Most Unloved Plants

Wednesday, February 11, 5:30 to 6:30 pm
Scott Horticulture Library

Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives” is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum where readers come together to discuss a book once a month and share in the reading experience.

Richard Mabey, Great Britain’s “greatest living nature writer” (London Times), has written a stirring and passionate defense of nature’s most unloved plants.  Weeds: In Defense of Nature's Most Unloved Plants is a fascinating, eye-opening, and vastly entertaining appreciation of the natural world’s unappreciated wildflowers.

The discussions are free and open to the public. Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion. Refreshments and coffee will be provided. RSVP online or call 610-328-8025.

Books will not be supplied, but one copy of each is available in the Scott Horticultural Library for check-out and members of the Scott Arboretum enjoy lending priviledges. Call to register 610-328-8025. Limited to 12.
