Holiday Wreaths 2017 – Fine Detail

Each fully decorated holiday wreath crafted by The Garden Club of the Back Bay is the product of many hours of labor. We did raise our price this season for this category (other items remain at 2015/2016 rates) not because we were trying to maximize profit, but because our limited volunteer pool was having a hard time fulfilling the demand. Wreaths of this size and quality sell for upwards of $240 in high end retail settings, due to the sheer amount of work involved. We hope you all will appreciate the love that goes into each wreath, but also know that our net profit each year goes straight back to the community. Order soon at http://www.gardenclubbackbay.org/shop/

Monday, December 4, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Of Monarchs and Milkweed: A Story of Coevolution, Cultural History, and Conservation

What if your host truly didn’t want you to visit? Found you intolerable, in fact, and didn’t want you to stay? You’d think that you’d be kicked out, but that isn’t the case with monarch butterflies and the common milkweed that supports their life cycle. Using striking visual imagery, evolutionary biologist Anurag Agrawal of Cornell University will speak about some of the natural history of monarchs and milkweed, the cultural importance of milkweed’s toxins, and the current predicament of monarch declines. The talk will be held in the Hunnewell Building of the Arnold Arboretum on Monday, December 4 at 7 pm. Dr. Agrawal is an award-winning scientist and educator, who has delved deeply into the coevolution of plants and animals. His book, Monarchs and Milkweed: A Migrating Butterfly, a Poisonous Plant, and Their Remarkable Story of Coevolution, will be available for purchase and signing. Fee: Free Arboretum member and student, $10 nonmember. Register at my.arboretum.harvard.edu or call 617-384-5277.

Wednesday, November 29, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm – Remembering German-Jewish Culture Through Its Culinary Traditions

What happens to a food tradition when its culture starts to vanish? The advent of the Nazi era brought about the demise of 1000 years of Jewish life in Germany, along with the loss of a cuisine that differed greatly from the Eastern European one that is now generally accepted as the definition of Jewish food. This pre-Nazi food tradition lives on in the kitchens of some German Jews and in the memories of many others around the world. This Boston University talk, by Gabrielle Rossmer and Sonya Gropman, a mother-daughter author team with a German-Jewish background, will address issues of food and memory, food as cultural identity, and preserving and documenting traditional recipes. The free event on Wednesday, November 29 at 6 pm is part of the Pepin Lecture Series. Reservations are required; RSVP by calling 617-353-9852. Meets at Boston University: 725 Commonwealth Ave College of Arts and Sciences Room 224.
