UT Gardens Book Club

"If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need." (Cicero) This book club is for those folks who love plants and books and even books about plants (or nature in general at the very least.) We will spend three months reading three different books and meeting to discuss them once each month. At each meeting we will provide you with a new plant, tea, and snacks; you provide your own copy of the book. Feel free to use an audio book, check it out from the library, borrow a friend’s copy, or purchase your very own! 

Silent Spring by Rachel Carson 
An environmental classic, Silent Spring by Rachel Carson had to be on our list for our first book club series. It will round out our trio of books by allowing us to dig deeper into our understanding of the impact our choices make on the environment, which is something gardeners experience more often than most. Our final plant for the year will be a lovely houseplant that will be able to stay nice and cozy during the winter months indoors with you.
