IN SEARCH OF THE BITTER HERBS OF PASSOVER: A horticulturist's journey into the Bible

Posted by:

Author and gardener Jo Ann Gardener will give a talk  entitled IN SEARCH OF THE BITTER HERBS OF PASSOVER: A horticulturist's journey into the Bible. An inspiring lecture for the Passover season. This is both a personal story of the author's return to Judaism on a backcountry farm in Canada, and the significance of her plant research for the way we understand the Bible. In an hour-long presentation, Jo Ann tells how five common weeds changed her life and led to her reading the Bible from what she calls 'the ground up.' This is an entirely new perspective that brings the pages of the ancient text to life and brings us closer to the biblical world. http://www.joanngardnerbooks.com/
