Join James Beard Award-winning author Adrian Miller for the ongoing launch of the Carolina Garden Trail in the Botanical Gardens at UNC Charlotte. Miller will take you on a virtual tour of the garden and highlight some plants that people of African heritage utilized in the Carolinas through different historical time periods, from Pre-European Colonization to the present day. Miller will discuss how a variety of plants have been used in Southern cuisine, including African rice (Oryza glaberrima), black-eyed peas (Vigna unguiculata subsp. unguiculata), greens (Brassica oleracae var. acephala), maize (Zea mays), okra (Abelmoschus esculentus), peaches (Prunus persica), peanuts (Arachis hyopgaea), sesame (Sesamum indicum), and sweet potatoes (Ipomoea batatas).
