Learn the stories of the plants we eat and the explorers who brought them to America in this book club led by Dow Gardens Historian, Samantha Engel, and Senior Horticulturist, Chuck Martin. 

Participants will need to secure a copy of The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats by Daniel Stone. The club will meet weekly via Zoom, where Martin and Engel will facilitate a discussion about the text, and the history and future of gardening. Each week one section of the book will be discussed. 

The Zoom link, as well as an outline and questions to guide the reading for the first meeting will be sent out one week prior to the event.
