Sweet effort for local treasure
The skillful basketmaking of our community's "sweetgrass ladies" perpetuates a priceless legacy.

As reported in Thursday's Post and Courier, the plant molecular ecologist is studying assorted sweetgrass plants to find those that best serve the basket-making purpose. The Citadel-owned Apron Island in marshland near Folly Beach is the site of that work.
