Master Gardener Volunteer Movie Night!

  • Thursday, January 10, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Come join us for our January 10th Movie Night presentation of “What Plants Talk About”, a fascinating documentary that effortlessly integrates hardcore science with a light-hearted look at how plants behave, revealing a world where plants are as busy, responsive and complex as we are. From the stunning heights of the Great Basin Desert to the lush coastal rainforests of west coast Canada, scientist J.C. Cahill takes us on a journey into the "secret world of plants," revealing an astonishing landscape where plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their allies, call in insect mercenaries and nurture their young. It is a world of pulsing activity, where plants communicate, co-operate and, sometimes, wage all-out war. So come along for the ride and discover that plants are a lot less passive and a lot more intelligent than you think!The screening starts at 6 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room of the Cairo Public Library located at 15 Railroad Avenue in Cairo, NY. The cost of the program is free. This event is hosted by the Master Gardener Volunteers of CCE Columbia and Greene Counties.
