Join Jason Kirby, Archivist for the Library at the Gardens, and Judith Wright, Teen Librarian at Homewood Public Library, as they team up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. Jason will share fun facts about the 1971 Apollo 14 NASA mission that explored the effects of weightlessness on seeds, and the trees—including the Gardens’ own Moon sycamore—that grew from them.
