Wednesday 23 October: 10:00am - 4:00pm

Botanic Garden, Classroom entrance, via the bike park on Bateman Street, 1 Brookside, CB2 1JE

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 (SAW) 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, covering such issues as access and benefit sharing rights, through poetry and collaborative art.
