Event description

Description

This is a practically based four-week course comprising 4x 3hour sessions. It will involve an introduction to some simple microscopic and biochemical techniques to investigate the structure of plants and to relate this to the way in which plants work. No previous knowledge of microscopy is necessary. We will use local materials from the garden and you may wish to further your own interests by investigating plant materials of your own choice. The course will be a thoroughly enjoyable opportunity to develop your own interests and share your findings within the group.
