FayetteMasterGardener

The Fayette Master Gardener Association will host a free lecture Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 10 a.m. at The Bridge Community Center, 225 Willow Bend Road in Peachtree City.

Tony Harris, a Cherokee Nation citizen, will discuss ethnobotany, the scientific study of the traditional knowledge and customs of a people concerning plants and their medical, religious and other uses.

Harris has been instrumental in establishing the Cherokee Garden at Green Meadows Preserve (Cobb County) to education the community about native plants that were important to the Cherokees. About 600 plants were used for medicine, food, weapons, crafts, lodging, canoes and basketry.

Harris is a Cobb County master gardener and is vice president of the Georgia Chapter of the Trail of Tears Association.
