Plant Adaptations

Tuesday, November 19th, 6-7:30pm

Instructor: Greg Torres, CGC Horticulturist

Cost: $15 (free for CGC volunteers)

The intention of this presentation is to introduce several broad concepts about plants so that the audience can understand the deep historical connections between plants and animals. Topics including species biogeography, pollination syndromes and seed dispersal syndromes as well as evolutionary anachronisms in our local forests are sure to leave the listener thinking in a different way about our native ecology.

Yoga in the Garden Series @ Civic Garden Center
Nov 27 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

We are resuming our Yoga in the Garden series in partnership with Melting Yoga this month. Join us, and our wonderful instructor Nicole, for a restorative yoga class the last Wednesday of each month. Just be sure to bring your yoga mat, and a donation if you wish (not necessary).

Intention:
Becoming aware of and easing the mind through gentle movement. Nurturing ourselves to become of better service to others. Developing compassion for self and others, supporting the power of community and philanthropy, and embracing the beauty of nature that surrounds us.

Donation-Based Giveback Opportunity:
Melting Yoga is partnering with the CGC to offer the series by donation (suggested $5 and/or 5 non-perishable foods or goods; or contribute what you are able). Please feel free to choose one or BOTH options!
Cash donations will support our local Civic Garden Center and non-perishable goods will support the current food desert existing in our neighboring community of Walnut Hills. We encourage non-perishable foods (including baby foods) but also personal-care items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine care and other toiletries.
