Featured Speaker: Ashley Glenn, Research Specialist, Sacred Seeds Program Manager and American Indian Ethnobotany Program Manager, William L. Brown Center, Missouri Botanical Garden

When you look out your window you may see weeds, scrub, or pretty flowers, but the Native American living in our region found food, medicine, and magic.  Learn the stories of these useful plant species in the St. Louis area and how to use them yourself in this fun and fact-filled look at Missouri’s Sacred Seeds.

The Missouri Botanical Garden William L. Brown Center’s Sacred Seeds program is a network of sanctuaries preserving biodiversity and plant knowledge through living gardens of locally important plants, including those of medicinal, ceremonial, food crop, and craft value.
