Afternoon Tea – Sold Out
It’s Tea and Scone Time! Join Judith Clister at the Garden for an afternoon sampling of natural and herbal teas collected locally. Judith will discuss history and uses of the natural teas as we sample some including birch, sassafras, spicebush, and mint.

Books will be available for browsing. $10.00 for WVBG members, $20 for non-members.
Winter Yoga, Relaxation, & Reflection
As the new year begins to flow, you are invited to take some time for reflection and relaxation. Join Heidi Sherwin at the WV Botanic Garden’s new Event Center for a special yoga class that will encourage the relaxation response through a gentle practice of slow flowing sequences and restorative postures. Journaling and guided meditation will also be integrated as you muse about your path into 2023. Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, and water. $20 for WVBG Members, $25 for non-members.
Identifying Trees in Winter
Buds, habit of growth, bark, site, and other factors make tree ID without leaves entirely possible. Join retired Core Arboretum manager and lifelong tree junkie Jon Weems for tips in identifying trees during the half of the year when leaves aren’t limiting your view into the forest. All ages. $5 for WVBG members, $15 for non-members. Back up date in case of bad weather 2/19.
