Mexico: A Celebration of Plants & Culture

May 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

“Mexico: A Celebration of Plants & Culture,” is a yearlong exploration of Mexico’s plants and their cultural connections. The season features major art exhibitions — including a botanical homage to artist Frida Kahlo — new festivals, and the return of annual favorites, such as Johnsonville Night Lights in the Garden.

Plants offer a window into culture, lifestyle, faith, and tradition, as well as an opportunity to consider connections between communities. Southwest Florida and portions of Mexico share a tropical wet forest ecosystem and many overlapping plant species. Mexico is the birthplace of crops such as corn, beans, and tomatoes that are essential to cuisines around the world. It harbors 10% of the world’s flora, making it one of the most biodiverse places on Earth and underscoring Naples Botanical Garden’s commitment to plant conservation throughout South Florida, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
