This event, hosted by the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, may be of interest to the Waite community.
Professor David Mabberley is again returning to Adelaide Botanic Garden this October to deliver his fifth intimate lecture series – don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from one of the world’s great botanical minds!
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.
