Thomas Jefferson & His Botanic Secrets


Saturdays in DC.… Meet outside the entrance of US Botanic Garden at the foot of Capitol Hill across the street from Garfield Circle.

  • One hour, interactive adventure through US Botanic Garden and a portion of the Capitol Hill landscape. Discover why Thomas Jefferson fought so hard to have a Botanic Garden placed near our US Capitol, and why he believed that our democracy would be preserved for centuries to come if botanic secrets could be shared with future generations. Participants will be amazed to learn how a beautiful botanic garden played an instrumental role in Madison getting the Constitution passed in 1787 when it appeared impossible. This enlightening walk is more about Jefferson’s and our Founders’ deep connection to botany, and how botany became the lens through which they established our nation’s foundation and framework, than it is about the science of botany.
