Featuring Michael Pollan and based on his best-selling book, this program takes viewers on an eye-opening exploration of the human relationship with the plant world -- seen from the plants' point of view. Narrated by Frances McDormand, the program shows how four familiar species -- the apple, the tulip, marijuana and the potato -- evolved to satisfy our yearnings for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control.

About the Indoor Gardening Society...
IGS is a great way to introduce adults and children to the importance of green plants. The more you know about botany and growing things, the more you understand their impact on every aspect of your life and their importance to human survival. Plants beautify your home and freshen the air in it. They are determining factors in many aspects of human history and development. Plants will heighten your appreciation of the outdoors and bring it inside for you to enjoy year-round. At each of our monthly meetings members enjoy:
-a lecture or program about a horticulturally-related topic
-a plant sale making rare and unusual plants available at reasonable prices
-an exhibition of spectacular specimens often unknown to people outside the plant hobbyist world and often unseen at botanical gardens.
-access to supplies and information that can turn anyone from a novice to a successful grower
