The SAW Trust is organizing the Global Garden Workshop in the Cambridge University Botanic Garden:
Plants produce a stunning array of chemicals, many of which are valuable natural products used by humans. Some of the most interesting plant species are found in remote locations across the globe, where indigenous people often have a long-standing relationship with the natural products they produce.
The Global Garden is a Science, Art and Writing workshop that will begin with hands-on science activities, real plant case studies and discussion of the aims of the scientists using them. Harnessing these scientific ideas and images, participants will be invited to give their personal response to the relationship between plants, chemicals and the people that use them, through poetry and collaborative art. For more information on the workshop series visit the OpenPlant website: www.openplant.org/global-garden.
