Wildflowers | Seeds of History, Thursday, March 10 at 7pm
Discover the facts and legends behind the wildflowers that captivate us every spring!
Why do we always see picturesque cattle among bluebonnets? Where did Indian blanket get its name? How did Native Americans and settling pioneers use wildflowers for food, medicinal cures, and to create distinctive tattoos? How are they being used today to cure cancer? Why are some years better than others?
Go beyond the pretty faces to explore how wildflowers impact our food chain and their symbiosis to a healthy economy and ecological security. Wildflowers | Seeds of History features interviews with horticulturists and botanists, along with tales from Luci Johnson about her mother’s futuristic revelation to Go Green, and even words from the White House with the First Lady. Meet Lady Bird Johnson’s granddaughter, Jennifer Robb, to learn why she champions her grandmother’s goal for the next generation.
Shot in breath-taking high definition video in the stellar wildflower season of spring 2010, travel the back roads of history that forecast the seeds of the future.
