The fall public tour of the University of Kansas’ Medicinal Garden is scheduled for Saturday.
At 10 a.m., botanist Jennifer Moody will lead attendees through the garden, which features a research area made up of rows of about 50 feet that include 15 to 20 species. There is also an interpretive garden, which has medicinal and native plants. The KU Student Farm, where students, faculty and staff grow their own vegetables, is also on the site.
The garden is east of the Lawrence Municipal Airport, on East 1600 Road, north of U.S. Highway 40. It is always open to the public from dawn to dusk, but public tours are scheduled only semiannually.
