The Social Life of Plants

A chance for visitors of all ages to explore current research on plants and people

This will be a daytime event where anthropologists and ethnobotanists will demonstrate the (often overlooked) interconnections between the lives of plants and people. Through films, talks, hands-on learning activities and exhibitions, participants will explore how plants affect the lives of individuals around the world, in medicine, food, materials, and rituals. We will emphasize current concerns such as conservation, climate change, biodiversity and complementary medicine, through collaborative research being undertaken by Kew and University of Kent.
