The Nature of our Holiday Traditions

Holiday plants all have special stories to tell – the spices and herbs we cook with and the plants we decorate with.  We’ll explore these stories and their history while creating our own pomander remembering that you are carrying on ancient traditions from all over the world.  And don’t forget about the wish for the bees!

Host:  Chinook Arch Regional Library System
Presenter:  Royal Botanical Gardens
