Frances Cartwright, plant scientist and STEM ambassador, explores some surprising facts about plants and ways in which their properties might be used to tackle some of the global problems facing us in the 21st Century. Artist Melanie Jackson will talk about the ways that plants have appeared in extraordinary fictions, and the stories that science can tell us about ourselves. Drinks and nibbles will be provided and you are welcome to bring along a picnic if you wish. Please note weather permitting this will be an outdoor event, so warm clothes would be advised.
