Art, stories, and tours celebrate plants and the Black experience

Seeds of Survival and Celebration: plants and the Black experience, returns for its third and final year at Cornell Botanic Gardens. This garden installation and exhibit celebrates the ways in which enslaved Africans used plants for culinary and medicinal purposes and that have contributed to the rich cultural fabric of America today. Visitors can explore more than 70 plants, deepen their knowledge through audio tours, view a gallery exhibit of photos of traditional African American gardens, and view exhibits on the how plants made their way to the Americas on slave ships and their enduring legacy in food, medicine, and culture.
