The African Garden

The creation of an African Garden is finally underway, and we expect to debut a collection of African plants and animals in the Fall 2014. If you are interested in participating, contact the SF Students in African Studies student group. Visit the African Studies at SF website for more information. To view the website during its construction, visit: The Digital Culture Garden at SF.

For Discussion: Research and describe at least one African animal or plant that is native to your selected country. Post an image and cite your references.

For Extra Credit: Research and describe an African plant that is commonly found in the United States. What is the genus and species? From what country did it originate, and how is it used in the U.S.?
