- Lan Su Chinese Garden - Portland
- Public Class
Silk is probably the best known and most valued Chinese export. The elements of silk production -- the mulberry plant and the silkworm -- are important parts of the practice of Chinese medicine. Learn more about the life-cycle of silk production and how the story of the mulberry and the silkworm are also a part of the art of Chinese medicine.
This lecture is part of an ongoing series on the Chinese medical arts presented in the Lan Su Chinese Garden's Scholar's Hall. Tea, samples or a demonstration will be shared at each event. The classes are offered to the public every other Tuesday in 2012 and are included in the price of admission to the garden.
