Initiated in 2007 by the Garden's curator, botanist Dr. Djaja D. Soejarto and the Center Director at the time, Dr. Norman R. Farnsworth, the Garden Walk offers a tour of the garden from the perspective of UIC researchers and features a lecture from a distinguished natural products scientist. Visitors also receive a sample of one of the plants grown in the garden which is generally found as an ornamental garden plant.<br /> cjshoema@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160714T132720Z-2070029-3e8-1745d2c-Oracle Thu, 14 Jul 2016 10:20:14 -0000
