Gymnosperm and economic botany field trip

The SC/SS 115 Ethnobotany class journeyed to the Pohnpei State Botanic Garden at Pwunso, in Kolonia, Pohnpei. The field trip focused on gymnosperms and plants with economic value.

Crushing, smelling, and even occasionally tasting the spice plants was encouraged.
