Our daily lives are full of close encounters with the plant kingdom – including food, textiles, medicines, drugs, dyes, pesticides and spices. In Mabberley’s two-day Masterclass you’ll learn about the fascinating world of what is, in fact, the human side of plant-animal interactions.
This course is not only for botanists and ethnobotanists, but for all those interested in the biological basis of human society. The course will teach a far deeper understanding of plants; how they have shaped our past and how they can impact our future.
Economic Botany Today includes lunch, morning and afternoon teas, Garden and Museum tours and a botanical cocktail party at the Masterclass’ conclusion.
