This event has passed.

Allen Centennial Gardens - rain or shine 620 Babcock Dr, Madison, WI 53706
@ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Join the Borghesi-Mellon Psychedelic Pasts, Presents, and Futures Workshop at the Allen Centennial Gardens for their second annual “Plants as Psychoactives & Medicines” event.

Come and explore the fascinating world of plants (and fungi!), as the foundations of medicines and pharmaceuticals on this drop-in, self-guided garden tour. Did you know that black pepper is psychoactive or that dandelion boasts numerous health benefits? Discover their medicinal and pharmaceutical stories shared by our team of interdisciplinary collaborators. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about familiar botanicals like cannabis, tobacco, and opium, and meet lesser-known medicinal gems like ergot, Acorus, and Diviner’s Sage. 

This event is free and open to all, rain or shine. Please RSVP to receive a special accompanying booklet by email in advance, which will also be available digitally during the event.
