Flowers accompany and enrich our lives. They decorate gardens, balconies and homes and delight us daily with their multiform, colorful beauty and their fragrance. Since time immemorial, blossoms have also been appreciated in the kitchen.

Ehrentraud Bayer and Margith Schmidt-Geier introduce the structure of flowers and their importance for plants and animals. They present a seasonal selection of edible flowers, their botanical classification and various uses. The real flowers can be marveled at and studied, sniffed, tasted, and small prepared samples enjoyed. The lecture will be accompanied by a selection of flower cookbooks and botanical works.

Munich Public Library

Public libraries provide people with media of all kinds, teach media literacy and thus enable participation in social life. These are also the tasks of the Munich Public Library. It is a lively metropolitan library that sees the diversity of the city's society as a challenge and takes it up in its services.
