The Triumph of Seeds

The Illinois State University Horticulture Center presents The Triumph of Seeds by Thor Hanson

In Hanson’s words:

“Seeds are vital everywhere… They transcend that imaginary boundary we erect between the natural world and the human world, appearing so regularly in our daily lives, in so many forms, that we hardly recognize how utterly dependent we are on them. Telling their story reminds us of our fundamental connections to nature—to plants, animals, soil, seasons, and the process of evolution itself. And in an age where, for the first time, more than half the human population lives in cities, reaffirming those links has never been more important.”

When: Silent auction at 5:00 p.m.; Presentation at 6:00 p.m.; book signing to follow

Sweet and savory seeded hors d’oeuvres will be served with coffee and tea.

Attendees receive a garden corsage and a botanical souvenir of the evening’s presentation
