The Botany of Derby – In-Person Workshop

It may be “The Run for the Roses,” but there are multiple plants involved in the Kentucky Derby. In this relaxed workshop, Alissandra Ayala, a biology graduate student from the University of Louisville, will fill us in about hay, pecans, mulberry leaves, and other plants (including roses), and how these botanical treasures contribute to the most exciting two minutes in sports. Hands down, you’ll never look at Derby quite the same way!

We’ll include a Kentucky Colonel mint plant with your ticket, so you can start growing your Derby Garden!
