Investigating an Ancient Mystery – What are the plants mentioned in the Bible?
No one can say for sure which plants are mentioned in the Bible. For hundreds of years, scholars have attempted to reach agreement on the exact species. Why is there so much confusion? What should we plant in our Biblical gardens? There are many lists of Bible Plants – which one is correct? We know that there were no lilies in the valley and no roses in Sharon. What is the balm of Gilead?
This illustrated (with slides) talk, will cover the history of the Bible, ancient migrations of plants across many continents, the effects of climate, and how we can successfully grow Bible plants in our gardens. We won’t solve the mystery, but we will learn why the mystery exists.

Handouts of Biblical Plants appropriate to Pacific Northwest gardens will be distributed. The talk will be followed by Q&A from the audience.
The plants (trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables) mentioned in the Bible, may be the subject of a new garden or integrated into existing gardens. Where space is limited, containers can be attractive floral exhibits. Slides of beautiful Biblical gardens throughout the world are included as well as examples of many of the plants suitable for Pacific Northwest gardens. Practical information for organizing, designing and growing a Biblical garden will be included. The experience of planting a Biblical garden at your Church or Synagogue will enrich the lives of all members of your congregation. We will also include a site survey of the proposed garden and one meeting with the Garden Committee to begin the project.
