I got this email and thought I'd pass it along, in case anyone is interested. Kim

St. George Village Botanical Garden [infoatthegarden1@gmail.com]

Come, have lunch and spend the afternoon. EVENTS ARE UNDER COVER IN THE GREAT HALL! Learn about the rich history of the property at Estate St. George. Enjoy the music of Bully and the Kafooners, hear a dramatization of the real stories of 7 enslaved Africans who were either born on, lived on, worked on, or died on the sugarcane plantation of Estate St. George. See demonstrations about the history of the fascinating people/plant interactions such as basket weaving, creating plant fibers, calabash shell art, and the heritage of using plants for medicinal purposes (from a 5th generation Bush Doctor!). Thanks to all the rain you will have the opportunity to see Mint Gut flowing.
All this and much more! Scroll down for the full schedule of events!

Admission: Adults $5, Children $2
