Poisonous plants take center stage at the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Gardening enthusiasts are invited to gather in Owensboro during their lunch breaks for a special monthly program.

Today's Walk, Talk & Lunch in the Garden will take place in The Cottage at the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden.   

Today's Walk and Talk is the second one so far this year.

The topic's "The Poison Plant Letters," but if you've already signed up to attend, you've probably noticed that the organizers have been playing up the deadly side of the talk.

Everything starts at 11:30 a.m. and runs for about an hour and a half.

The program's designed to take place during the business lunch hour, but you're more than welcome to stick around and chat or take a stroll through the garden, especially with the warm weather we're seeing again today.

The Walk and Talks begin in March and take place until the last one of the season in September.

If you'd like to attend today, reservations are required.

To make a last-minute one, you can call the Botanical Garden at 270-852-8925.
