Plants & Stories of the Winter Solstice

Friday, December 20, 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

$25 non-members; $20 members

Since ancient times, the winter solstice has been celebrated by cultures around the world as a sacred, festive time. Plants such as oak, holly, ivy, mistletoe, and evergreens have long been a crucial part of these celebrations. Discover the natural history and folklore of these plants while celebrating the longest night of the year and the “official” start of winter. The program will include an indoor presentation and tasty seasonal treats prepared by Cornell Catering, plus some craft hard cider tastings for some traditional “Wassail” toasts!  Weather permitting, we’ll conclude with a candlelight visit to our Winter Garden to sing some plant-related carols.
