    What do giant trees of the tropical rainforest, the redbud in the garden, "peas in a pod," and the key element of a revolution in agriculture all have in common? They are legumes! Come learn all about this plant family and the remarkable relationship that its many members establish with certain common soil bacteria that allows them to produce their own nitrogen fertilizer from the air. LOCATION: Conservatory Classroom, FREE: Pre-registration required
