Adult Night Hike: Origins of House Plants

About This Event

Plant parents, past and present! Since ancient times, people have kept ornamental plants in their homes for beauty and bragging rights. In this night hike adventure, we will trace the history of houseplants from ancient Babylon to today; from tools of imperial dominance to the art of creating tiny indoor landscapes to the frantic race for the fanciest ferns. We will visit the many popular plants that we encounter in garden centers today, find out where they come from and how to make them thrive.
