Latin American Ethnobotanical Garden

LACSI’s Latin American Ethnobotanical Garden (LAEG), behind Baldwin Hall on UGA’s historic North Campus, celebrates Latin American indigenous plant knowledge and use.  With over 150 species of annual and perennial plants from Mexico, Central and South America, the LAEG is a resource for K-12 educators, UGA faculty, and the general community.  If you are a K-12 teacher, UGA faculty/staff member or member of the community interested in organizing a tour of the LAEG, please contact LACSI’s Associate Director, Paul Duncan.  You are also encouraged to visit our Ethnobotanical Garden Educator Resources page.  It provides links to garden-related curricula, web-sites, videos, and more.
