Cherokee Worldview Garden Celebration

In spite of a hot, humid morning, close to a full house (judged by a packed Discovery Center parking area) enjoyed an excellent celebration of the Cherokee Worldview Garden today.

Events included a Cherokee dance performance, Cherokee story-telling, 'painting' with mineral pigments, and primitive technology and guided tours of the garden.

The heat didn't diminish the enthusiasm of the crowd, as willing 'volunteers' were invited to participate in the dances!

Cherokee Worldview Garden Celebration

If you're in the area, come to the celebration of the Cherokee Worldview Garden on Saturday, June 19 (10 am- noon). There will be garden tours, traditional music and dance performances.

The garden is devoted to plants that have meaning for the Cherokee people (whether medical, edible, or useful for other things) and is designed to help encourage you (as a visitor) to experience the connection with nature that is an essential part of the Cherokee world.

Garden Naturalists

The Garden Naturalist Program currently meets every Wednesday from 9 to 11am to explore the natural history of the South Carolina Botanical Garden. These are images from our last walk.
