May - October
7 - 8 p.m.
The Science Cafe returns this spring to explore the topic of "Plants and Human Health" during Cocktails in the Garden for a series of fun and lively discussions.
The series addresses health topics such as the development of low-cost drugs for treating malaria with synthetic compounds from sweet wormwood, the search for new sources of medicines in the Balkans and the use of Strychnos shrubs as a remedy, drug or deadly poison.
Visitors are encouraged to arrive early and sip from the featured "creative cocktail" as they discuss its botanical ingredients with Garden staff. The relaxed atmosphere allows visitors to ask questions, explore new topics, become informed and talk with scientists.
Free with Garden Admission | Meet in Mershon Hall
