Local Collections: Botanicals as Primary Sources


Think critically about our connection with the natural world and how its roots are embedded in history - from medicinal gardens and landscape architecture to seed catalogues and United States currency. Using primary sources from the Library of Congress to explore these histories, narratives and links to plants, participants will study the centuries-old traditions of botanical illustration and horticulture, as well as present-day community gardens. Through observation, collaboration and hands-on exploration, gain a deeper understanding of horticultural practices and history, sustainability, conservation and more. Further discovery will come from site visits to local collections and museums and guest lectures from experts. Content is appropriate for a range of subject areas including art, design, history, science and technology.
