Poetry in the Gardens
Saturdays, Oct. 19, Nov. 16, and Dec. 14th
10 to 11:30 a.m.
At its core, poetry asks of us, “Who am I and how do I see myself in the larger context of the world?” In the second season of this monthly series, docents from Tucson Botanical Gardens and the University of Arizona Poetry Center invite you to explore connections between art, nature and humanity through informal poetry discussions. In October, explore “found poetry” amid the whimsy of found objects in the Barrio Garden. In November, celebrate the bounty of the season with food poetry in the Kitchen Courtyard Garden. And in December, fly away to other worlds with sci-fi poetry and a visit to the Gardens’ new exhibit Alien Invasion of the Plant Kind.
Docents leading the discussion will provide participants with a packet of poems. No prior knowledge of poetry is needed, but a pen and notebook are recommended. Free with Gardens admission.Email this page to a friend
