Mathews Garden's Deep Roots: Jim Krupa

UK Biologist Jim Krupa studies carnivorous plants and has long been the steward of an unusual patch of land on UK's campus: Mathews Garden. The Garden is a 0.6 acre woodland garden on the corner of Limestone Street and Washington Avenue that has been in existence since 1900 and is used by students for research and teaching.

The Mathews Garden was originally part of the grounds of the Mathews House and the original plan of the garden was the work of Clarence Wentworth Mathews. In later years it was tended by Ruth E. Mathews, his daughter, who sold it to the University in 1968.

In this podcast, Krupa discusses the history and biodiversity of the garden. Mathews Garden contains approximately 350 species of plants.
