Our Life With Plants Walk and Talk with Guy Petheram

28 Oct 2023 10:30 - 13:30

Plants have been our ever-present companions, providing everything we required to survive and flourish. This Talk & Walk celebrates our shared life with plants, and the myriad ways they have enabled and enriched our lives, as much now as ever. The immense usefulness of plants continues to be revealed by plant science, not just as a source of food, shelter and clothing, but also in fascinating new ways – like the development of Velcro, in self-cleaning products, and even as part of the space program.
