When you think of this time of year, what smells and colours come to mind? Pine, gingerbread, mulled cider, green, and red? These are related to plants that have been used to celebrate our winter holidays for over 2,000 years within different cultures. In fact, most of the plants that we use today for holidays have long histories and amazing stories from ancient times. In this session lead by instructors from the Royal Botanical Gardens, participants will:
– explore the variety and importance of plants in our holiday traditions
– discover where these plants come from around the world
– develop an appreciation of how traditions can migrate when people and their plants do
Please note: this session can accommodate up to a maximum of 35 participants.
