Master Gardeners Host Free Movie Night in February

Come join us for our February 21st Movie Night presentation of “Wicked Plants”, a fascinating look at the deliciously dark side of the plant kingdom. Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, Amy Stewart, New York Times bestseller author of Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities, takes on Mother Nature's most appalling creations. It's an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. Stewart presents tales of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers! 

The screening starts at 6 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room of the Cairo Public Library located at 15 Railroad Avenue in Cairo, NY. The cost of the program is free. This event is hosted by the Master Gardener Volunteers of CCE Columbia and Greene Counties.
