From Tiny To Mighty: The History, Uses, And Cultural Relevance Of The Strawberry

Tuesday, May 29 | 7:00-8:30 PM | Downtown Library | Multipurpose Room

It’s strawberry time! Join Ecology by Design owner William Kirst as he kicks off Strawberry Week with an exploration of one of the world's most amazing fruits.

With his unique sense of humor and palpable love of all things botanical, William will trace the strawberry from ancient Rome, through extensive breeding over 3 continents and hundreds of years, over wild berry patches to manicured gardens, bringing us to an understanding and appreciation of the strawberry in our own lives.
