Each year, the highlight of the Friends of the Garden annual meeting is an interesting talk on nature or gardening. This year the Friends of the Garden will bring Charlie Williams to create a first-person interpretation of André Michaux for a presentation and reception.
Michaux was an 18th Century French botanist and plant collector. For a while, Michaux used Charleston as a base for his explorations eastward. He not only sent specimens to France, but is credited for bringing the crape myrtle, tea plant and the camellia to America. Come hear him talk of his travels.
