Plant Mythology

The stories of the sacred plants, the magical herbs and the fascinating tales of why we call them what we do!

Ever wonder how a plant got a strange botanical name? In this class we discusses which plants were sacred to which gods, and the stories that go along with them. This is where science and culture collide. What does Yarrow have to do with Achilles? Which Egyptian god governs Horehound?

Find out these stories and more in this class devoted to the myths and stories behind the plants..
