Plant intelligence is a hot topic these days. Just this past week the media carried the results of a study that showed plants responded to the sound of caterpillars eating their leaves. When we think about plants, we don’t often associate a term like “behavior” with them, but some maintain that plants actively engage with the environment in which they live, communicating, responding to nutrients and the predators and herbivores that are around them. By exploring the fascinating behaviors of plant life, including that of the dodder vine, wild tobacco plant, and Douglas fir, What Plants Talk About teaches us all that plants are smarter than we thought!

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 horticulture-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
Become a member of IGS at your first meeting and receive a free plant on the spot!
-$25 yearly membership includes your entire family
