Botanical Garden to Begin 'Second Saturdays' Program


St. George Village Botanical Garden will hold the first in a series of educational workshops for children and their parents from 9 a.m. to noon, on Saturday, Jan. 12. This week's event is called "Making Fibers from Plants."
"Many different plants around the world provide fibers that humans have long used for a variety of purposes, from weaving cloth to weaving baskets," Chakroff said. "In this workshop, parents and children will learn about plants that provide fibers, visit the fiber garden, and then don goggles and aprons to experiment with different types of plants to find out whether local plants contain useful fibers."
She cautions that the activity will get messy and suggests participants wear old clothes.
Space for the workshops is limited; there is a $5 per person charge. To register, call 692-2874.
