Travel the world with National Geographic Explorer Maria Fadiman and Longwood’s own global plant explorer Peter Zale as they reveal how plants reflect the ecological identity and ethnobotany of the regions where they originate and become part of the cultural landscapes they are introduced to. You will delve into the science of Ethnobotany (the study of how a region's plants are used by the local culture and people) and gain an understanding of how environment and human connection can improve our conservation goals and help us cultivate plants from around the world.  This session includes three-month access to the presentation recording.
