THE DARK GARDEN

WITH PROFESSOR JONATHAN SCHMIDT AND SHELLEY CARTER

Thursday October 25, 2018

7 – 9PM

Ages 18+

$18 +HST

This event is a fundraiser for the ECFTA and space is limited.

Botany at its most fascinating!  Learn about the history and uses of the baneful herbs and plants closely associated with witchcraft and used since antiquity for purposes both medicinal and magical. Belladonna, clary sage, datura, foxgloves, hellebores, mandrake, monkshood, mugwort, poppies, rue, tansies, vervain, wormwood, and more will be explored. This seminar is entertaining and informative, but definitely not a “how-to” as these plants can be deadly.

Shelley Carter is the coordinator of the Elora Tarot, the Elora Tarot and Divination Festival and a fierce gardener.

Professor Jonathan Schmidt has taught about the chemical ecology and ethnobotany of plants for over 25 years at the University of Guelph and tends a very peculiar garden.
