Opening Reception for Medicinal Plants Exhibit

May 23, 2012 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Bartram’s Garden’s new medicinal plant garden has recently been enhanced to incorporate all twenty-one “sundry Plants” described by John Bartram in an appendix to Medicina Britanica, printed by Franklin and Hall in Philadelphia in 1751. This is considered the first pharmacopeia of North American plants to be published in America, and Bartram’s appendix was soon reprinted by Linnaeus and others in the European scientific world.  We are pleased to bring Mr. Bartram’s contributions to life and hope you can join us for this celebration!

Fine refreshments will be served
