Spotlight for the week of May 2
If you’re like me, you’ve been balancing the pull between cultivating your garden and traveling the world. Memphis is offering two perfect opportunities to nurture those two sides of yourself.
On Tuesday, May 3 at 7pm, The Memphis Horticultural Society and the Memphis Botanic Garden welcome Dr. Beronda Montgomery, Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State. Dr. Montgomery’s most recent publication, Lessons from Plants, invites us to appreciate our interdependence with plants and shows how plant behavior and adaptation offer valuable insights for human thriving.
On Saturday May 7th at 6pm, the Memphis Museum of Science and History is collaborating with the Ghanaian Association of Memphis for Taste of Ghana! Explore many sides of Ghanaian culture with authentic food, live music, a marketplace, and readings from Memphians from Ghana. This is a unique opportunity to meet the local and greater Ghanaian communities and deepen your understanding of Memphis as part of the African diaspora.
