    North Carolina Humanities Council
    Presents Lectures at the Garden

    The public is invited to attend these lectures to see first-hand the North Carolina Humanities Council’s efforts to make the humanities a cornerstone of public life.

    WHERE DID ALL THE LONGLEAF GO?
    Sat., Sept. 6, 2014: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

    Prior to 1492, longleaf pine ecosystems covered more than 92 million acres in the southeastern United States. A scant four million acres now remain. Efforts are being made to restore these ecosytems, as will be explained by Robert Miller, Ph. D.

    SIT-A-SPELL PRESENTATION
    Sat., Sept. 27, 2014: 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

    In the history of the south, “Ya’ll come and sit-a-spell” was the call for work stoppage. Bone tired sharecroppers dropped cotton sacks, hoes, tobacco planters, and baskets at the sound of those words. Ms. E.J. Stewart takes attendees on a nostalgic trip back to what was once a staple of the North Carolina agriculture landscape.

    These lectures are free of charge and open to the general public. Pre-registration is appreciated.
    General admission applies for entry into the Garden.

    This project is made possible by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
