Around The World In 80 Plants Tickets and Dates
Around the World in 80 PlantsOnline talk with Jonathan Drori and the Chelsea Physic Garden
Cannabis, Opium Poppy and Cacao may seem familiar but their plant science, interwoven with history, culture and folklore hold many surprises. Others, such as Iboga, Yam and the Peacock Flower are much less well-known but have fascinating human connections.
Join author of Around the World in 80 Trees, Jonathan Drori, for an online talk and Q&A with London's oldest botanic garden. For this special talk and Q&A, Drori will focus on some of medicinal plants found at Chelsea Physic Garden, which he explores in his upcoming book, Around the World in 80 Plants.
Drori is known for sharing his scientific knowledge with humour and passion, and this evening will be a taster of what to expect in his new book, out in April 2021.
Please note this is a remote digital workshop and will require you to use the video conferencing system "Zoom", for this event you will have the option to share your video screen and participate in group discussion and ask questions.
There is no option to attend in person.
